Let’s take a look at some of the nuances of child support in Maryland, specifically in the Baltimore area. Child support in our state generally focuses on the incomes of the parents rather than expenses accrued by the children. Simply put…kids with divorced parents are entitled to the same level of financial support.
In our state there are two different forms for calculating child support. If one parent has primary physical custody of the children while the other parent has less than 128 overnights a year, then the primary physical custody guidelines worksheet is used to calculate child support. If there is shared physical custody the parties use that particular worksheet.
