NC Child Support Calculator

The NC child support calculator is intended to help parents determine how much money they will pay in monthly child support. This contribution is usually made by the noncustodial parent. NC child support is calculated via a formula set by the Conference of Chief District Court Judges, applying to couples with an annual income of $300,000 or less. This calculator determines the value of child support to be paid based on income, days the children spend in your custody, and other child-related expenses within the state of North Carolina.
