How Is Child Support Determined?
The amount of child support that you may be seeking, or ordered to pay in your
divorce, is governed by statute and is based upon the South Carolina Child Support
Guidelines. When making decisions related to child support, the Court
will take into account the gross income of each parent as well as other
child-related expenses such as health insurance and daycare. Each party
will be required to submit a Financial Declaration and proof of income
and the Court will calculate the amount of support to be paid using the
South Carolina Child Support Guidelines. Child support can be paid directly
to the custodial parent or through the Clerk of Court’s office with
a 5% administrative fee added to each payment.
If a child support order is already established, either party may petition
the Court for a modification of the amount based upon a substantial change
in circumstance such as a reduction in income or loss of employment.
