How is Child Support Calculated in Pennsylvania?


child support agreement

In Pennsylvania, Child Support is calculated by taking the net incomes of each party and putting it into the child support calculator. Child support guidelines used by Pennsylvania family law courts can be found in the Pennsylvania Rules of Civil Procedure, Rules 1910.16-1 to 1910.16-7. 

Those guidelines that are used in the calculator are set forth by law and they consider the cost that it takes on average to raise a child or a certain number of children in a household with a certain amount of income. 

It becomes more difficult when you have people who are self-employed as their wages may be disputable. We also look at whether there is shared or split custody because that’s given special consideration. Consideration can be given for costs of health insurance, school tuition, and childcare.
