Calculate Child Support Ohio

In Ohio, courts and CSEAs are obliged to apply either the JFS 07768 (for sole or shared parenting orders) or the JFS 07769 for determining the amount of child support to be paid (for split parenting orders). If by some circumstance both parties come to have a combined gross annual income greater than $336,000 it is advisable to contact an attorney or the Child Support enforcement agency.

To acquire computation results, you will need to know the gross yearly income of at least one parent before you begin. Results will be more accurate if both involved parents’ information is included.

Income may come from a job, self-employment, workers’ compensation, unemployment, disability or retirement payments, or from other yearly sources. It may also come from overtime, bonuses, or commissions earned over the previous three calendar years.

To include in the calculation, you can wish to gather data on child care costs, health insurance premiums, current child support orders, and spousal support amounts.
