North Carolina has adopted child support guidelines. The guidelines apply to all cases where the combined gross income of the parents does not exceed $25,000 monthly ($300,000 annually). For those cases where the combined gross income of the parents exceeds this sum, the guidelines merely establish a minimum and many other factors have to be considered in setting child support. Even when the guidelines apply, the court may deviate from them in appropriate cases.
