NC Child Support


The calculation of child support is governed by the North Carolina Child Support Guidelines established by the Conference of Chief District Court Judges.

A child support calculator and the North Carolina Child Support Guidelines are available on the North Carolina Child Support Enforcement website.  This link to the AOC calculators has been placed on this website with permission of the North Carolina Division of Social Services, Child Support Enforcement, a division of the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services.

As a general rule, child support will be set by the court using the Guideline amount unless the court determines that a variance is needed because the Guideline amount produces too much or inadequate child support or is otherwise unreasonable.
