How Is Child Support Calculated?
There are many different factors taken into account when a decision is
made about child support. Although it is always preferable to make decisions
outside of court, sometimes you are unable to come to an agreement and
avoid litigation. Once you are in court, the choice will be left in the
hands of the judge. Child support is typically calculated by a percentage
of the non-custodial parent's income, as well as a few other pre-determined factors.
- A few of the factors taken into account when the judge makes a decision
about child support may include:
- Each parent's job and income
- Each parent's earning capacity
- Each parent's education level
- The existing/proposed child custody order
