How Does Maryland Calculate Child Support?

The Child Support Guidelines estimate the percentage of income that parents would spend on their kids if the parents were living together.

The steps to calculate the amount of child support include:

  • Determining each parent’s actual income
  • Determining each parent’s adjusted income
  • Add up both parents’ adjusted actual incomes, with the combined amount factored into the Guidelines chart to figure out the “basic child support obligation”
  • Include some additional expenses, such as health insurance costs and daycare costs, which generates the “total child support obligation”
  • The noncustodial parent is responsible for paying a percentage of total child support obligation

What Does Child Support Cover in Maryland?

Generally, child support is awarded to the custodial parent so that the child can have the financial support from both the mother and father.

Child support is a regular payment that is made to the parent in custody of the child by the non-custodial parent to help offset provision costs for the child, such as:

  • Food
  • Clothing
  • Shelter
  • Medical expenses
  • Education

The state of Maryland determines the amount of these payments by using very specific guidelines in regards to the child's financial needs, medical needs, accustomed standard of living, and income of both parents. Our firm will work our hardest to help ensure that all sources of income are accounted for and that the support awarded is accurate and fair. Do not risk the financial security of your child by navigating through the legal complexities alone.
