The primary factors are: (a) the placement schedule the parties are following; (b) the gross income of each party; (c) whether there are other children from another marriage or relationship; (c) whether either parent has work-related childcare expenses; (d) the insurance premiums being paid for the child; and (e) whether there are other extraordinary expenses. You can attempt to calculate child support by visiting the North Carolina Child Support Enforcement agency website at https://nddhacts01.dhhs.state.nc.us/home.jsp?TargetScreen=WorkSheet.jsp. However, you are strongly cautioned and encouraged to speak to an attorney. North Carolina Family Law Specialist Monty Beck can advise you about the appropriate amount of child support that should be paid for your children.
