“How is Oklahoma child support determined?” The court uses the Oklahoma child support guidelines to determine the amount that is to be paid. Child support is calculated by using an income sharing approach. The guidelines look at several different factors such as, overnights with each parent, income of each parent, any insurance covering the children, and several other factors. Each factor is entered into a spreadsheet that calculates financial responsibility. After each field is entered, the guidelines determine the monthly child support obligation. This calculation is used to guide the court in determining child support.
Child support calculations have many issues that can be calculated improperly and cost you significant money over time. For more information or if you need help calculating Oklahoma child support, contact us here, or call 405-542-2529.
