Child Support Guidelines

Maryland has strict laws regarding child support and payment determinations. For this reason, the state offers a payment calculator you can use to help decide money awards. Additionally, the state allows parents to create their own agreement, but it must adhere to the state guidelines.

Child support payments are based on the combined actual income of both parents. When a parent is not employed at the time of calculation, their share of the payment is based on potential income. The factors that help determine child support are:

  • childcare expenses;
  • health insurance;
  • medical expenses;
  • education expenses;
  • travel expenses;
  • the number of shared minor children; and/or
  • if either party is paying alimony.
