In general, child support is 20% of net income for one child, 25% for two, etc. These guidelines are nationwide as far as I know.
The father pays 10-30 percent of whatever he makes.
As of 2011 they changed the formula. I do not remember exactly how it works but you can find it here http://www.a1childsupportinfo.com
In New Jersey, provisions for the support, care and education of a child may be ordered to be paid by a parent. The factors the courts consider are: . the needs of the child… . the standard or living and the financial circumstances of both parents . the financial resources, needs and obligations of both parents . the earning power of each parent . the child's need and capacity for education, including college work . the age and health of the parents and the child . any income and assets and earning ability of the child . whether either parent has a responsibility to support others . any debts and liabilities of the parents or the child . any other relevant factors There are official New Jersey Child Support guidelines, designed to be in the best interests of the child, that the courts use to help determine the correct amount of child support. These will be followed, unless both parents agree to an amount other than that calculated by the guidelines, or the courts decide the guidelines are unjust due to specific circumstances of the case. see links
In the same manner if not. see link
How is child support calculated in Colorado when non custodial makes less than custodial but child is splitting time equally between both?
If the custodial is the father, he pays support, even with sole custody.
Generally based on the difference in income, but is usually applied only to fathers.
Depends on whether it's the mother or father earning more and related issues to access. Marcia Clark, the OJ Simpson prosecutor earned nearly 5X more than Gordon and and they …had joint custody, but he still had to pay child support. Her listed business expenses included clothing, shoes, makeup, and hair care cost for the trial. I got a copy of the case file an hour before she filed to have it sealed.
The same way that anyone else's support is calculated - as a percentage of net income.
Much the same as any other State: generally, a percentage of net income (gross minus deductions for taxes and health insurance) which increases with the number of children (20…% for one child; 25% for two, etc.) with limited exceptions for extraordinary circumstances. (FYI - younger children and/or new spouses are not "extraordinary circumstances").
If you are paying support for one child and have one additional child you are responsible for, you pay 17% of your net income (after taxes but before insurance and retirement …is taken out).
well when the parent responsible for the child support has "no income" he should notify the child support court of his situation, they may modify the monthly payment assuming …the parent can pay at least $50-60 per week or $200-240 monthly. if after this modification the parent still cant pay, the court may order the grandparents to pay the child support until the parent can pay.
In general, child support is based on the obligor's income, not the obligee's.
Support is calculated based on the laws of the children's legal state of residence.
It would be based upon which parent has primary physical custody.
MD child support is calculated according to basic cost of living (COL) and the preset tables configured by the department of child and family services. Since the cost of livin…g is different in every state, child support payments will be calculated differently from state to state.
This will differ, depending on what province, state, or country you are in. As a general rule, one will need to find a calculator for one's specific area, or at the very leas…t a comparable one. Legal staff may be able to provide the local information or check the website for your local court system and/or government department responsible for child care.
