How Is Child Support Determined in Oklahoma?

The amount of child support is determined by a basic guideline set up by the state of Oklahoma. This guideline involves a mathematical formula that takes into account the gross income of each parent. The support amount is a percentage of these incomes, which is then split based on various factors.

Factors considered under Oklahoma child support law include, but are not limited to:

  • The cost of daycare
  • Health insurance costs
  • The number of children the couple have together
  • How much time each parent spends with the child
  • Whether child support is paid for other children from other relationships

Every parent has a duty to financially support his or her child. Oklahoma has enacted laws to protect the children of divorced or unmarried parents through child support provisions. Child support is generally given to the custodial parent by the non-custodial parent. It is also a common order for a higher-earning parent to provide this support so that the child’s needs may be met in the same manner as before the marriage ended. Generally, child support payments are required to be paid until the child turns 18 or until they graduate from high school.

Child support payments are intended to help pay for:

  • Food
  • Housing
  • Clothing
  • Education
  • Transportation
  • Medical and dental needs
