What's the average child support payment?

Child support is an important aspect of many children's lives. It helps provide them with some of the income that they're missing as a result of not living with both parents at the same time. It can cover food, clothing, other necessities or even activities that a child wants to participate in.

One thing some parents ask is what the average child support payment is and what to expect if they have to pay child support. The average child support payment isn't something you can come up with easily. In fact, since child support payments are based on your income and other factors, you can't just look at averages and know what to expect.

How is what you owe in child support determined?

To start with, what you owe in support will depend on how much money you make. For instance, if you make $600 a month, then you'll be expected to pay at least $68 for a single child and $69 for two children. If you earn $4,000 a month, in comparison, you'd be expected to pay $585 for a single child or $910 for two children.

Of course, there are other considerations, and these are just support guidelines. For instance, if your child has special needs, the amount of support you must pay may be increased to reflect that.

If you're going to have to pay child support, then it's a good idea to talk to your attorney about the factors that influence your case and to learn more about how much you may need to pay for your child each month.
