Child Support Manual Worksheets Forms
Description:

IMPORTANT:

The new child support guildelines became effective January 1, 2014.  Effective January 1, 2014,  refer to JDF 1822(a), JDF 1820M(a) and JDF 1821M(a) to calculate child support.

If you are trying to calculate retroactive child support that was ORDERED prior to January 1, 2014, you will need to use the guidelines that were in effect at that time.   JDF 1822(b), JDF 1820M(b) and JDF 1821M(b) refer to the guidelines that were in effect prior to January 1, 2014. 

 

The manual versions of the child support worksheets are in Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat (PDF) formats. If you have Microsoft Excel on your computer, you may prefer to use the electronic version of the worksheets to automatically calculate or check your manual calculations. To download the worksheets to your computer, simply right mouse click on the appropriate link below and select "Save Target as" (Internet Explorer) or "Save Link as" (Netscape Navigator) and then save it to your computer hard drive.

  • Use Worksheet A when the child(ren) spend(s) 92 overnights or less with one of the parents.
  • Use Worksheet B when the child(ren) spend(s) at least 93 overnights with each parent.
