Colorado Springs, CO asked in Family Law and Child Support for Puerto Rico

Q: Does ASUME in PR deviate from guidelines when noncustodial parent has other biological children or other CS obligations?

I read that many states do deviate from guidelines when NCP has other children to care for or other support orders (for children not on case). Does ASUME deviate or consider the other children as an expense or credit?

A: Hello and thank you for using Justia. Yes local law does allow crédits for other child support Court Órdenes, children under your care in addition to various other crédits.

If you need additional information please feel free to contact me directly.

A: Greetings;

Yes the court deviates from those guidelines when taking in consideration other child support obligations and kids under the non custodial parents care, among other factors that will give credit and establish a more just child support payment so every dependent doesn't get affected.
