What laws apply to child support?

State law, under The Child Support Standards Act (CSSA), requires the court to award child support based on a specific formula. Parents who choose to make their own arrangements can opt-out of the statutory law and may negotiate these matters with the guidance of their counsel during mediation or in the process of a collaborative divorce. Parents have the right to opt out of the statute, but only after they have acknowledged that they understand the calculation for child support under CSSA.

A primary concern of the family law court is to ensure that the primary caretaker of a child receives adequate funds to care for the child or children after divorce. Therefore, the court will take a variety of considerations into account when determining child support.

The court may consider the following to ensure that the child receives a stable environment:

  • Earning capacities of each parent
  • Each parent's assets and debts
  • Child's educational needs
  • Child's extracurricular activities
  • Child's medical needs
