How is child support determined?
Note: the percentages listed below are not current. The law changed in July 2013.
Generally, one parent pays support (with rare exceptions), and may have to maintain life and health insurance. Child support is based on a complicated formula called the Guidelines. To get a rough idea of what that support will be, use this method: take the gross (all) of the supporting parent's income, subtract taxes and the cost of the health insurance covering the child, then apply to that figure the following percentages to estimate the amount of support:
One child: 25 percent of net income
Two children: 33 percent of net income
Three children: 40 percent of net income
Four or more children: 45 percent of net income
This is a simplified method for estimating child support! You must use the official forms and charts to set the accurate amount.
