Child Support

North Carolina has Child Support Guidelines for determining child support and generally these will apply to most cases. Under the Guidelines, child support is determined using an “income shares model.”  This simply means that a child should receive the same proportion of a parent’s income that such a child would have received if the parents were still living together.

Although there are definite exceptions (for example when an able-bodied parent refuses to work), thanks to our Guidelines in North Carolina, child support can be among the easier items to work out between most parents.
