Child Support/Insurance for Child


Have you run the child support calculator that is on this website? Yes, he does get credit for providing the health insurance.


Hey Mal…yes I have, but was just wondering how that worked…if it was dollar for dollar credit to him…

Dear gordona:

Greetings. Go and work this out on the child support worksheet/calculator on our website and that will tell you if he is paying the correct amount. Thank you.

My husband pays 100% of the insurance for his child. We were told that he gets a dollar for dollar credit for this amount and that counts as part of his obligation for child support. Is this true? The childs portion is $162/mo, and he pays $600 in support to the mother. He makes $4800/mo…does this sound in line for what he should be paying? Thank you!
