How Is Child Support Calculated In Ohio?
Ohio courts follow state law when calculating the amount of child support a parent needs to pay. The formula will combine both parent’s gross incomes although certain deductions may be allowed from each parent’s income, including:
- Local income tax.
- Spousal or child support payments for other former spouses or children
- Value of a federal dependency exemption for the dependents in their household, excluding the children involved in the current child support payment calculations
Once these deductions are taken out, both parent’s incomes are combined and applied to a chart identifying the amount of support necessary to raise children in that income category.
Example: If one parent makes $20,000 per year and the other makes $40,000 per year, the parent with the higher income will be required to pay 66% of the child support.
