When parents are separating, one of the biggest concerns is how will they financially support their children and minimize the impact of the new change on their child. In North Carolina, we use the "income shares" model to determine the child support obligation. The North Carolina Child Support Guidelines has formulated this approach with the concept of allowing the child to receive the same proportional income he or she would have received if his or her parents were living together. The North Carolina Child Support Guidelines uses the following factors when calculating the amount of support for families:

  • The number of overnights with each parent
  • The gross monthly income of each parent
  • Child care costs
  • Payments of health insurance premiums
  • Pre-existing child support obligations
  • Extraordinary expenses such as education, extraordinary medical expenses, or travel costs
