How is Child Support Calculated?
Child support is usually based on a state-decided formula and they use the same formula regardless of the income level of the parents.
No. The only two people involved in the financial support are the parents. Not that the new husband won't end up spending some of his money on the child, but it is not his leg…al obligation and does not lessen the responsibility of the bio dad.
In general, (re)marriage should not increase or decrease one's child support obligation, regardless of the new spouse's income or the presence of stepchildren.
No, unless the spouse is also a biological parent of the child.
Can a current wife's income be considered in calculating her husband's child support to his ex-wife?
Answer No, the support of children is the sole responsibility of the biological parent(s) not a new wife or husband. The income of the new spouse could be a…ffected if the couple have joint accounts that are subject to attachment for child support arrearages or other judgment actions.
Yes if you get about the same amount of hours overtime every check, but they can't touch any expense check's such as milage or predem.
Not in accordance with the state guidelines, but can be considered using a Rebuttable Presumption argument. see link
Go to the website for the child support agency in the State in which the child lives.
Yes the state can use BAH (a military term for "Basic Allowance for Housing) to calculate child support since it is a part of your gross income. This is standard.
In general, support is a percentage of net income which increases with each additional child.
If the obligor still lives in the US, they retain jurisdiction. see links below
Like any sole ownership business, it comes down to the net profit after expenses and depreciation on items that regularly require replacement, such as provided appliances. See… link
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.
It depends on the state. Every state has child support guidelines that provide a formula for assessing child support. In some states both parents would just pay the child's e…xpenses while the child is with them. In other states the court looks at mom's income and dad's income, adds the two together, figures the percentage of the total income each one makes, looks at the child support chart, and figures that percentage for each parent. In cases like this one parent can still owe the other child support. Example: Mom makes 20,000 and dad makes 40,000. The total is 60,000. the state child support chart says that at 60,000 a year total, the total child support per month is 1600. to figure who owes what, take 20,000 (mom's salary) and divide by 60,000 (total income). Multiply answer by 100, so 20,000/60,000 = .33333 x 100 = 33.33% . Dad is 40,000/60,000 = .6666 x 100 = 66.66%. In this example if the total child support per month is 1600, then mom is expected to provide 533.33 per month and dad provides 1066.66 per month. Now here's where it gets complex. If both parents have child equal amount, then it would take 800 per month per parent to support the child (1600 in child support divided by two homes). Since mom makes 533.33 per month, mom would need (800-533.33) or 150.00 per month, which dad would give to mom. If the amount of time parents have the child is not equal, then there is a different formula and it depends on the state. Also the percentage of total family income that goes to support the child varies by state. But this gives you an example of how it is calculated. Extra medical expenses as well as day care can be added in as well.
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.
