Getting Child Support Right

Under North Carolina law, decisions about child support obligations from the noncustodial parent to the custodial parent are governed by the North Carolina Child Support Guidelines. In general, the guidelines consider the income of each party, other child support obligations, child care costs, extraordinary expenses, parenting time and health care premiums that cover the children.

Examples of extraordinary expenses include:

  • Participation in sports, camps and social activities
  • Private school and special education needs
  • Religious upbringing or schooling
  • Special dietary needs
  • Special health care needs
  • Travel expenses
