Child Support

Child support is court-ordered funds to be paid by one parent (“obligor” or “payer”) to the other parent (“obligee” or “payee”) of a minor child after divorce (dissolution) or separation. Usually, the dollar amounts are based on the income of both parents, the number of children, the expenses of the custodial parent, and any special needs of the child. In many states or locales, the amount is determined by a chart which factors in all these figures.
