Iowa Child Support is an unusual issue because unlike alimony, it’s not left to the discretion of a judge, but calculated using Iowa guideline formulas.

Little is subject to investigation, and that means your disposable income is not a factor in the ultimate decision.

Forida child support is determined through Iowa guideline formulas that take into consideration your income, you ex-wife’s income, how many children you have, and the amount of time you spend each month with your kids.

Those factors not included when calculating Child Support in Iowa are your expenses, her expenses, and the children's primary costs.

Don’t be surprised when additional expenses such as day care and medical expenses are added to the guideline support amount.

So for example, if your child needs medical treatment not covered by medical insurance, like braces, this medical expense will be in addition to your regular monthly support payments.
