The 2019 North Carolina Child Support Guidelines became effective January 1, 2019. There are not significant changes from the previous guidelines, except that the new guidelines' threshold is $360,000 combined income per year. This means that if the combined adjusted gross income is more than $360,000 per year, the child support obligation cannot be determined by using the child support schedule.

These guidelines provide a helpful summary of how child support is calculated, and also goes into more detail concerning the following issues related to child support:

  • Health insurance and how it related to child support; and
  • Other extraordinary expenses.
