Child support cost calculation can be a tricky process. A standard table of child support costs can help you determine a fair and reasonable amount to pay. For example, if you have two children, your obligation will be about $6000 per year. However, if you have more than two children, your obligation could be much higher. If you have four children, you’ll be expected to pay over $12,000 per year.

Child support is a legal obligation owed by one parent to another for the support of children born out of marriage. This obligation continues until the child reaches the age of 18 or graduates from high school, whichever comes first. It may end earlier, however, if the child is no longer attending high school or no longer relies on the other parent. It may also continue for the child’s entire life, until the child reaches the age of 19 or emancipation.

Child support orders are subject to change if there is a substantial change in circumstances. Typically, a change in circumstance is considered a substantial change in circumstances if the difference between the amount being paid under the existing order and the amount calculated according to the guidelines is 15% or more. To request a modification, you should contact a local CSE agency and ask to speak with a caseworker. Otherwise, you can use the form provided by the local agency. Once you file your motion, the judge will hold a hearing. You will need to show all the necessary documentation to support your motion.

A child support order must include a medical support component, which means health insurance and payments for out-of-pocket medical expenses. If one parent is unable to provide health insurance coverage for the child, the other may be ordered to provide this coverage. Other factors that may be considered when determining a child support award include education costs and child care expenses.
Child support order for 8 prior children is $12,000 per year
In many instances, the child support order for 8 prior children is higher than the child support award for one prior child. This is because the child support order is based on the total amount of income earned by each parent. It also takes into account expenses incurred by the children for post-secondary education. The court order must be calculated on an annual basis and divided by 52 weeks. It is important to know that the court will not give credit for a portion of the order that addresses arrearages.
