Child support is the ongoing obligation for a monthly payment made directly or indirectly by a non-custodial parent to a custodial parent for the care and support of children of a relationship or marriage that has been terminated.


Child support is often determined based on the parents' income and the percentage of time the child spends with each parent. Other factors which are considered by the Court in calculating child support are the parties' health insurance expenses, their union dues, their tax filing status, the number of children the parents have together and the cost of daycare. Any order for Child Support can be modified if there has been a change of circumstances until the support is terminated, generally when the child turns 18, or, is 19 years of age, but is still a full-time high school student, whichever first occurs.
