To calculate support:
- If there are no minor children, 40% of the difference between the payor’s net monthly income and the recipients’ net monthly income
- If there are minor children, then the income differential is reduced by the amount of child support and typically, that result is multiplied by 30%
Typically, spousal support or alimony pendente lite award is combined with child support. This is taxable to the recipient and deductible to the payor.
*** Please note: The court has the final authority to determine the amount of support awarded. This formula gives only an estimate and is not a guarantee of the amount of support that will be awarded. Other factors may affect the amount of support awarded.
