State Guidelines for Child Support

State Child support guidelines determine child support. The child support amount usually takes into consideration the parents’ income, parents’ obligations, needs of the child. Other factors used to determine support amounts include child health care, extraordinary medical expenses, and the amount of overnight visits the child has with the non-custodial parent. There are situations where the amount may be more or less than the amount calculated. Parents may have agreed upon an amount in the divorce settlement or a prenuptial agreement. The court has final authority to set child support amount.

Child Support Modification

A parent is entitled to a modification of their support order if there is a substantial change in circumstances has occurred since the support order was entered. An increase or decrease in a parent’s income or the expenses for the child constitutes a change of circumstances.
