When a couple is getting divorced they have to come up with a plan and submit it to the judge in order for the judge to grant them the divorce. This plan must not only not only include things such as how much will be paid to the parent who is the custodial parent, but who will be making the decisions and who will be paying for everything. For example, if a medical emergency. happens to one of the children which parent will shoulder the burden of paying for that medical emergency.
In this plan includes everything including child support. There is an income calculator that will help determine how much the parent will owe whole is not the custodian of the child.
To determine how much is paid out for child custody you must first determine how many children are involved. This is one of the determining factors in how much child support will be paid out.
The next determining factor will be if the custodial parent qualifies for an earned income tax credit. After this there are a series of factors that include things like the grossly monthly income of the non-custodial parent, the amount of monthly child support that is being paid from a prior marriage, monthly cost of family health insurance, monthly income of custodial parent, monthly cost of daycare that is being provided by the custodial parent, and the monthly cost of health insurance that is being paid by the parent who is responsible for keeping the children.
This a real live example. If there two children involved and each parent brings in $5000 a month and each parent pays $500 a month for health insurance and child care cost $800 a month, then the non-custodial parent will pay $1128 for child support each month.
In order to determine how much child support you would owe we would advise you to go to the child support income calculator to help you determine how much you would owe each month.
