Child Support Worksheet

Disclaimer

  • This interactive worksheet is provided for informational purposes only. The user should independently verify that all entries and calculations generated by the interactive worksheet are correct before relying on its results or filing it with a court.
  • A non-custodial parent may pay more than their child support obligation, however, statute 40-4-11.1 does not provide a requirement that a custodial parent reimburse the non-custodial parent in this situation.
  • The child support worksheet calculations apply to combined monthly gross income levels from $800 to $30,000 as provide for in statute 40-4-11.1.
  • Rounding error protocols vary from application to application and may cause slightly different results.
