Child Support


Dear harrisoja:

Greetings. The guidance in NC on child support and how long a non-custodial parent is required to pay is the state law on the same. Are you asking for the actual number of the law?

Please state your idea of a special circumstance and I will tell you if it extends the obligation. Best of luck.
