How Child Support Is Calculated in Oklahoma
In Oklahoma, child support is determined by looking at the child support guidelines. The guidelines act as a formula and allow courts to calculate the amount of support by looking at the income of both parents.
Our attorneys will work one-on-one with you to help you understand the guidelines and how they pertain to your case. We will give you an honest and complete assessment of your financial situation and we will fight to get you and your child the support necessary to move forward into the future.
In Oklahoma, the minimum wage is the baseline income for parents under the child support guidelines. This means that if one parent makes less than minimum wage, even if they are unemployed, they will be treated as making minimum wage (currently, $1,256 per month) for child support purposes.
Child support orders can be modified when there has been a permanent, material, and continuing change in circumstances. Our attorneys can help you modify an existing order and help you and your child secure the support you need.
We can also help you enforce an order. If your ex-spouse has not been paying child support, we will bring a contempt action. We can also pursue wage garnishment through Oklahoma’s Child Support Enforcement Offices.
