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

Very little is subject to analysis, so disposable income is not a factor in the decision.

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

Your expenses, your ex-wifeís expenses, and the children's principal expenses are not part of the calculation of Child Support in Florida.

It should be noted however that additional expenses such as day care and medical expenses are often added to the guideline support.
