Child Support

September 28, 2017

How much child support can I get?

The court determines child support with a formula that takes into account the age of the child(ren), the income of each parent, and other factors like debts, dependents, access to savings (trust funds, investments, etc.).1  You can find the Child Support Affidavit form on the Maine court website but please check with the court as to what additional forms must be filed. You can also get a better idea of much child support you might receive by using a child support calculator (please note that we are not affiliated with that website and cannot vouch for the accuracy of the information contained on it).
