it really depends on what childcare options you choose for your child. you can hire a baby sitter or you can seek the services of home inhome daycare or traditional daycare centers.

I will give this website that has a list of daycare centers by state/city. then you can check them out one by one.

as a guide, a good daycare center teaches the child how to develop their physical well being- physical activities, social development and independence, self esteem and identity. just click the related link below

I believe this is fairly uniform among the states: 20% of net income for one child; 25% for two children, and so on. However, the court/child support agency can deviate from those guidelines for numerous reasons.

In general, child support is a percentage of net income. In Illinois, for example, it's 20% of net income for one child, 25% for two, etc. Income includes almost everything, including overtime, unemployment benefits and workers compensation, but not welfare payments or SSI.

The court will calculate the amount based on the both parents' income, alimony, other child support payments, day care expenses and health insurance costs. There is not set percentage, as other states have.

Child s support in Indiana is determined by several factors:

To determine the appropriate child support award:

  • The weekly gross income is calculated for each parent. Weekly gross income includes, but is not limited to, salaries, wages, commissions, bonuses, overtime, pensions, severance, workers' compensation, unemployment insurances benefits, gifts, inheritances and spousal maintenance from a prior marriage.

Each parent completes a worksheet listing their income. Each worksheet must be signed by the parent. Income must be verified with documentation of past and current earning. Pay stubs and past tax returns are often used to prove income.

  • A basic support obligation is found using the parents' total income and a support schedule.

Certain payments are deducted from the total income, such as, court-ordered child support for prior children and spousal maintenance from a prior marriage.

  • Additions will be made to the child support obligation for expenses such as child care, health insurance for the child and extraordinary health or educational costs.
  • The support obligation is pro-rated between the parents based on their proportionate share of the total income. Dividing the weekly income of each parent by the total will give you each parent's percentage share of the income. Each parent's child support obligation is determined by multiplying his or her percentage share of the total weekly income times the total child support obligation.
  • Adjustments might be made to the child support obligation, if a parent will pay for child care or health insurance premiums. A parenting time credit may also apply. Deviations from the guideline amount are also occasionally granted.
  • The court will finally order the non-custodial to pay his or her pro-rated child support amount to the custodial parent.

Child support is a complicated determination; contact an attorney to discuss your rights and obligations.

I believe that the same guidelines apply nationwide: for one child, 20% of net income; for two children, 25%, and so on.

Can you go to jail for not paying child support on a child over 18 years old in Indiana?

That depends on the circumstances. Indiana reserves the right to jail parents found in contempt of court for failure to pay any child support in arrears no matter the age of the child, or failure to abide by an extended support order (where support is modified by the court to continue past the child's age of emancipation, which is 19 in Indiana, recently lowered from age 21 ). In general, if no support is in arrears, Indiana child support terminates when the child reaches the age 19 although a provision remains for the "educational needs" of a child over 19 but doesn't spell out exactly what falls into that category.
