Calculating Payments

North Carolina has set formulas for the determination of child support; however, other elements are open to interpretation and often require the attention of a skilled family attorney to be properly assessed. For example, factors such as health care expenses and day care costs need to be taken into account when determining the final child support amount. Our lawyers carefully consider your entire situation and work hard to ensure you receive what you deserve or do not pay more than you should.

Guidelines in North Carolina apply to parties who have a combined income of less than $300,000 per year. Child support obligations awarded by the court must continue to be paid until the child is 18 years old or graduates from high school, whichever happens last. Child support payments are terminated if the child is emancipated.
