How is child support calculated?

Child support is calculated by adding your income and the other parent’s income together. For example, if one party made three thousand dollars a month and another party made two thousand dollars a month, their total combined income would be five thousand dollars. The party that makes three thousand dollars a month has 60 percent of the income. The party makes two thousand dollars a month, has 40 percent of the income. If the child support was a thousand dollars, then the party who is who makes three thousand dollars a month would pay 60 percent or six hundred dollars a month.

That’s not the actual figure. It is just an example to demonstrate how child support would work.
