Step 2: Calculate child support if you have kids
Ordinary Child Support: If you have one or more minor children, and one of you is responsible for them 60% of each month or more, the law says the other parent must pay child support.
Split Custody Child Support: In some cases, each parent has at least one child over 60% of the time. If so, both must calculate child support. Ultimately, the parent with the higher amount pays the difference between the amounts to the parent with the lower amount.
The Amount: The amount is decided by a government "Child Support Table", which was last updated in 2017.
The Calculation: In the screen below, scroll down to "Enter the following information" and use the calculator. Write down the amount it gives you. We will soon ask for it.
