Calculating Child Support Payments

Although every case is different, the noncustodial parent is typically ordered to make payments to cover the child's needs. There are guidelines in place to ensure all of the necessary costs are covered and the custodial parent is not put in a tough position.

Child support is calculated by:

  • The income of each parent
  • The earning capacity of each parent
  • The needs of the child or children
  • Child care costs
  • Health insurance costs for the child
  • The amount of time each parent spends with the child
