All parents have a legal obligation to financially support their children until their children become emancipated. When parents no longer live together it often becomes necessary for the child support obligation of the non-residential, non-custodial be quantified and established in a court order or formal written agreement.
How is the Amount of Child Support Determined?
For the vast majority of parents, the answer is simple – the North Carolina Child Support Guidelines determine the amount of child support. North Carolina has an established formula, using a guideline chart and worksheets to calculate a child support figure. The worksheet takes into account various information such as each parent’s income, the custodial schedule, work-related child care costs, health insurance, any other extraordinary special expenses. Unless the parents agree to use a different child support amount, the court will generally order child support in the amount determined by the child support guidelines.
