Understanding Maine's Child Support Guidelines

Child support paymentWhen two parents get a divorce, or when a single parent has custody of a child and needs financial assistance from the other parent, child support can be decided between the two parents or ordered by a family court judge.

Child support takes the form of a monthly payment, decided ahead of time by the parents through mediation or by the court. The amount of support generally follows the state's child support guidelines, which factor in:

  • the parents' combined annual gross income,
  • the number of children being supported,
  • and the ages of each child.
