In North Carolina, child support is based on a guideline, and both parents have a legal obligation to support their children financially. The child support guidelines make an assumption about what amount of financial support is needed for your children. Although online child support calculators can provide basic support estimates for some people, calculators cannot address the unique specifics of your situation. If you are self-employed or have a high income, a higher or lower child support obligation than the guideline amount may be ordered.

The Connection Between Child Support And Child Custody
Child support and child custody are considered two separate issues to the court. This means the support must be paid even if the paying parent is prevented from seeing his or her child. Conversely, one parent should not deny access to the child if the other parent fails to pay child support as ordered or agreed.
