Pennsylvania Child Support Guidelines

In Pennsylvania, child support is based on:

  • The income or earning capacity of both parents
  • The number of children you support
  • Your child custody schedule
  • Day care and health care costs

Our lawyers will go over the calculations so you can get an idea as to how much you might expect to receive or pay.

Determining income is often the most complex child support issue. If a parent is self-employed or has income from other sources, it may take a forensic accountant to accurately determine income for purposes of calculating child support.

New Child Support Guidelines: Child support guidelines were updated just a few years ago and more updates went into effect on April 1, 2018. Changes to the guidelines may allow you to receive a higher amount of child support or may support a modification if you already have a child support order.
