Child Support

Image of child sleeping with a teddy bearChild support is money one parent pays the other parent or guardian (or sometimes the State) to meet the needs of a child. In Oregon support is based on the combined income of the parents and what parents at that income level spend to support their children. Usually, child support is paid when the parents do not live in the same household. Child support includes money payments and providing health insurance coverage. Child support is usually paid on a monthly basis. The court can order child support to be paid. Oregon has guidelines for calculating support. Your attorney or our Family Law Resource staff can provide help with child support calculations.
