Minor children need to be financially supported by both parents.  Each state has its own formula for calculating support.  In Maryland and DC, both parents will need to exchange (1) income information, (2) the cost of health care for the child and (3) daycare or after-care expenses, so that the child support calculations can be prepared.  The D.C. government provides a helpful on-line tool Child Support Guideline Calculator.

The time-sharing schedule is taken into account in the child support calculations, so if this changes, or there is a material change in the income of the parents or the children’s expenses, the child support should be recalculated. Post-judgment modifications of support are not uncommon.
