In North Carolina, child support agreements are typically set up to be equitable for both parents and their child or children. Child support in N.C. is based on an “income shares” model, designed by the U.S. Office of Child Support Enforcement, that says child support is a shared parental responsibility that allows the child to receive the same income support they would if the parents were still together.
However, navigating child support is one of the biggest hangups in divorce proceedings, and can often drag out the process far longer than necessary. Our child support calculator can help you get an estimate of your child support responsibility in North Carolina, which can potentially help prepare you for negotiations in court.
Many factors go into calculating how much child support a parent pays, including monthly gross income, alimony (paid or received), and how many children are being supported. If you want to get a basic estimate of your child support obligation, you can enter your information into our North Carolina child support calculator.
