Ruling / Judgment Disclaimer

When addressing financial and child support support matters in any of our Sites, articles, research or other content, we’ve taken every effort to ensure we accurately represent our research, data, reports, and exhibits and their ability to improve your chances of a fair ruling in your child support case. However, there is no guarantee that you will get any results or achieve any particular judgment using any of our reports, tools, data or recommendations. Nothing on our Sites is a promise or guarantee of a certain amount of child support payment.

Kid Costs and The Shopping Friend make no guarantees of success. What we offer is the presentation of factual child costs analysis based on sound legal principles and economic evidence. The rest is up to the judge. Because this is an unpredictable factor, we cannot and do not guarantee any particular ruling or payment level. Ideally, we would love for the judge to be a reasonable person willing to listen to sound arguments and facts. The ending result depends on the judge's willingness to listen to the reasoning and evidence, comprehend the information, and make a personal judgment of the information.

Any forward-looking statements outlined on our Sites are simply our opinion and thus are not guarantees or promises for actual performance. It should be clear to you that by law we make no guarantees that you will achieve any results from our work, data, research, ideas or models presented on our Sites, and we offer no professional legal, medical, psychological, or financial advice.


Professional Advice Disclaimer

We are NOT lawyers or professional economists. We cannot and will not give legal advice. Michelle is an expert consultant on the reasonable needs and costs of children, NOT child support guidelines.  She is heavily educated in economics under the Austrian school but can only advise on the economic appropriateness of actual, real-time child costs. Her research, exhibits, and economic analysis are structured to meet sound legal principles on child support. (However, we do not advise going into court without an alternative argument.)

In particular, you should regularly consult a doctor in all matters relating to physical or mental health, particularly concerning any symptoms that may require diagnosis or medical attention.
