North Carolina Child Support Guidelines

Like many states, North Carolina has guidelines for establishing the child support obligations of noncustodial parents. According to the guidelines, parents spending less than 123 overnights each year with the child are obligated to make support payments to the custodial parent. The formula uses a ratio of the parent’s income and the number of overnights each parent spends with the child to determine child support.

The guidelines consider income from all sources, including:

  • Salary
  • Bonuses
  • Commissions
  • Pensions
  • Severance pay
  • Annuity income
  • Capital gains
  • Workers’ compensation
  • Social Security benefits
  • Alimony received by a former spouse

    In addition to monetary payments, child support orders may also include an obligation for both parents to contribute to medical insurance coverage, childcare, and other expenses. Our child support attorneys in Charlotte can help you calculate the appropriate amount of child support for your family and advise you about any special circumstances that may apply to your situation.

    Child Support Modifications

    Circumstances in life change. If one parent’s income increases or decreases significantly, a modification may need to be made to an existing child support order. Our lawyers can evaluate your situation to see if your obligation is subject to modification. If so, we can advise you on the most efficient way to seek the modification.

    Call (704) 931-5535 to schedule a consultation with a child support lawyer in Charlotte.
