Child support is determined by looking at the gross income of the parents. The child support calculation does not consider expenses of the parents. A basic child support calculation can be made by adding the monthly income of both parents, finding the nearest amount on the child support guidelines, found at the schedule below. Then apply each parent’s percentage of income to the result and you get each parents share of the child support.
