How Child Support Is Calculated
Like many states, Pennsylvania calculates child support by using a formula. Income is one variable used in Pennsylvania’s child support guidelines. However, you and your divorce lawyer should carefully examine what your spouse has included in his or her income calculation. For example, did he or she include bonuses, overtime pay and such perks as a company car? Are these types of income counted as income for the purposes of child support calculations? The answers to these questions can change the child support calculation considerably. It is easy to see why guidance from an experienced divorce attorney is important when it comes to child support, even though the calculation is based on a fairly straightforward formula.
Most parents who pay child support have the monthly amount deducted directly from their paychecks via wage garnishment.
