Child support calculator

Yes the guidelines were updated last year.

Unless there is a substantial change in circumstances you can not obtain a change. I suspect that the change is relatively small. Correct?

Can you tell me when last year the guidelines changed? Do you know why they were updated? What causes a review of the guidelines or are they reviewed on a regular basis like annually? When are attorneys informed of the change, only when the change is passed or in advance? In my case the calculator is showing a difference of about $200 per month which is about 13% of my total child support payment. Doesn’t seem small to me when I am struggling to pay my bills.

Thanks so much for answering me.

Can anyone answer the previously posted questions? Thanks…

The guidelines are reviewed every 4 years by the Conference of Chief District Court Judges. Attorneys become aware of the change when the new quidelines are adopted by the Conference.

Has there been a change in the child support calculations over the last two years? The current calculator indicates I am paying more than I should be. How do I get this corrected?
