Child Support Laws in Tennessee
Tennessee law requires child support to be settled by the court. The judge will calculate the support based on:
- Individual incomes of each parent
- How much time the mother and father each spend with their child
- How many children the child support will cover
This financial aid helps the custodial parent cover living expenses, food, insurance, and any general needs of the child. Child support may also provide a way for non-custodial parents to pay for extra fees for the child’s activities or healthcare.
Once the court establishes the child support arrangement, it is required to be upheld until either the child graduates from high school, turns 18, or is emancipated. Of course, under special circumstances, the arrangement can be modified to reflect any changes in need or ability to contribute. I can work to help you show compelling proof that the support should be amended to better address any life changes.

Tennessee has low tolerance for noncustodial parents who fail to provide their owed monthly payments to their child’s other parent. The Child Support Services Enforcement will handle the matter, which could result in a variety of penalties, including:
- Revocation of your driver’s license
- Seizure of your bank account
- Denial of your passport
- Placement of a lien on your property
- Loss of your tax refund
- Impaired credit report
