Will You Have to Pay Child Support?
There is almost always child support involved in a child custody and parenting time case. Oregon uses standardized guidelines to calculate who pays child support, and how much. These guidelines look at:
- Each parent’s income (including spousal support)
- How much time the child spends with each parent
- Health insurance costs
- Child care costs
The bigger the difference between the parents’ income or parenting time responsibilities, the more likely it is you will have to pay child support.
