How Is Child Support Determined?

Unless a particular situation warrants a deviation, the amount and terms of child support will be determined according to North Carolina Child Support Guidelines.

Several factors will determine how much child support is necessary, including the incomes of both parents and how many overnights the child spends with each parent.
