Child custody is a highly contested family law issue.

How Child Support Works/What it Covers

Child support is based on the payor’s net income and the number of children in the family. This amount paid is typically a fixed dollar amount based on a percentage of the net income of the child support payor. The court may order parties to split additional expenses.

The following are standard percentages of payor’s net income for which child support must be paid:

1 child – 20%
2 children – 28%
3 children – 32%
4 children – 40%

While these are the basic guidelines to which the court follows when determining the amount of child support paid, there are other factors considered by a judge.
