Child support

How is the amount of child support determined/calculated?

Child Support or Child Maintenance is provided via Family Law and Public Policies regulating the matter. These are done for the financial benefits of an infant (which includes child caregiver; caregiver; guardian or state), through continuing or annual payment that are made by the parent after the conclusion of marriage or other Partnership.

Child support is provided by the obligor of the guardian for the care and maintenance of children of the partnership that was ended or never existed in certain situations (either directly or indirectly).

The obligor is often a relative who is not a guardian.

In general, courts take any form of earned income or payment- that is, income arising from work or other activity- into account, in determining the amount of support you are responsible for paying, along with recurrent passive income such as dividends on your invested goods. Employees will pay for any of the following kinds of earned income:

# Wages(Salary),
# Shares of partnership,
# Success and signing bonuses,
# Deferral fee,
# Interest on company pension and
# Age of the Spouse.

Hope it Helps
