Child support is determined based on the income of the parties and needs of the children.  Maryland and Washington, DC have child support calculators that determine the presumptive amount of support.  Some of the factors that are considered in a child support calculation are:

  • The number of children that need support.
  • The amount of time each parent spends with the children.
  • The amount of income each parent earns.
  • Childcare expenses.
  • Health insurance expenses
