The guideline child support amount is the standard provided by the North Carolina Courts and is adhered to in nearly all child support cases. It is current as of 2009. The intent of this calculator is for informational and educational purposes only. This calculator provides only an estimate and is not a guarantee of the amount of child support that will be ordered.
