Child support involves an ongoing, periodic payment made by a parent for the financial benefit of a child following the end of a marriage or relationship. Child maintenance is paid directly or indirectly by an obligor to an obligee for the care and support of children from a relationship that has ended.
In Idaho the parties incomes along with several other less critical figures are inputted into a software program created by the Idaho Supreme Court. The resulting calculation will indicate what the obligor should pay each month for child support. If a permanent change in material circumstances occurs increasing or decreasing after the original support order, which often includes one or both of the parties’ income increasing or decreasing, child support can be recalculated with more recent and accurate information. In Idaho, child support is often arranged as part of a divorce, marital separation, annulment or legal separation.
