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 child support by looking at the income of both parents.
Our child support attorneys will work one-on-one with you to help you understand the child support 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.
Minimum Wage and Child Support
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 he or she is unemployed, he or she will be treated (for child support computation) as making minimum wage (currently, $1,256 per month) for child support purposes.
Modifications to Child Support and Enforcements
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 child support order and help you and your child secure the support you need.
We can also help you enforce a child support 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.
