Child Support Payments

Calculate Child Support Payments

The District of Columbia child support guidelines are used to determine the amount of child support owed by the non-custodial parent.  The guidelines factor in the incomes of both parents, child care costs, health insurance expenditures, child support paid on other cases, and other variables in calculating the child support amount.  The guidelines are set in DC law and are used by the DC Superior Court as part of child support hearings.

Access the DC Guideline Calculator to enter the required information, and determine the amount of your support obligation.

Please Note: This estimate is for informational use only and is not a guarantee of the amount of child support the court will order. The results are only as accurate as the information that you provide when using the tool. Other factors may affect the actual child support order, and the Court will have the final authority to determine the amount of the child support order.
