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.
