Beginning January 1, 2018, new amendments to the Iowa Child Support Guidelines will go into effect. Some of the important changes include:
-What a parent is allowed to deduct for the portion of the child’s health insurance when calculating child support.
-What deductions are allowed if a child is on Hawk-I for health insurance.
-What the definition of gross monthly income for child support purposes is and how spousal support will factor into the child support calculations.
There are additional important revisions as well. For more information on the new guidelines that go into effect on January 1, 2018, please feel free to contact Simpson Legal Group, LLC at (712) 256-9899.
