Child support arrangements in South Carolina are mandatory when done through the family court system. The process is designed to follow an “income shares” model that was created by the U.S. Office of Child Support Enforcement. This model is based on the idea that the children should receive the same amount of parental support income that they would have received if the parents still lived together.

In South Carolina, child support and custody negotiations are one of the biggest hindrances in finalizing a divorce and often cause the most contention for both parties. By using this South Carolina child support calculator, you can get a basic estimate of child support responsibilities. When you know this general information, it becomes easier for you to negotiate a child support arrangement.
