If you have a child or children and are getting a divorce or separating from your spouse, you will need to consider child support. This is typically paid by the noncustodial parent to the custodial parent to provide for the child’s care, which may include food and shelter, clothing, medical treatment, education, and special needs. Even if you share custody of your child, you may be entitled to receive or obligated to pay support if a financial disparity exists between you and your ex-spouse.

How Is Child Support Calculated in Maryland?
The Maryland Commission on Child Support offers an online calculator and also two Excel calculators, which can be used to see what amount of child support you may be required to pay or entitled to receive. Accurately calculating support can be difficult, however, due to the extensive amount of information that is required. It is also important that you ensure all pertinent financial information is properly presented, and that any special needs are included in the final support amount.
Our Annapolis child support attorneys are here to simplify the process. We can clearly explain your rights to you and how child support may be calculated, based on your parenting plan, your income, your spouse’s income, and your child’s needs. With our guidance, you can rest assured that every detail will be considered to reach a support arrangement that actually works.
