Child Support


STBX is self employed. Would Child support be based on what he reported for taxes? Last year on taxes he reported earning $40,000 and paying out $20,000 in advertising. About how much would he have to pay in child support for 3 children?


The tax returns for the person and the business can be used to determine income. The amount of child support will depend on both parties’ incomes, insurance expenses for the children, day-care cost, if any, and the custodial schedule.

There is a child support calculator on this website which you can use to estimate support in your case.
