To use the child support calculator, select or enter the appropriate information next to each statement.
When you have completed the form, click on the calculate button to get an estimate of the amount of child support that the non-custodial parent will have to pay to the custodial parent in Oklahoma.
Please remember that these calculators are for informational and educational purposes only. The amount of child support a court will order for any particular case may be different from the amount estimated by the calculator.
For the most part these calculators assume that all of the children will primarily live with one parent. It is not intended to estimate situations where there is joint physical custody or split custody.
These calculators do not take into account any possible adjustments for children who are not subject to the custody order but who are living with one of the parents.
These factors and others may affect a child support order entered by a court.
The purpose of this calculator is informational and educational only. It does not constitute legal advice. This child support calculator is based on statutory guidelines. The court has the final authority to determine the amount of child support awarded. This number is only an estimate and is not a guarantee of the amount of child support that will be awarded. Other factors may affect the amount of child support awarded. Please see an attorney in your area for more detailed information:
Enforcing Oklahoma Child Support in Other Countries
In Oklahoma, child support issues are handled by the Oklahoma Child Support Services (OCSS) – a division of the Oklahoma Department of Human Services. Because of its belief that a child who receives financial support from both of his or her parents is more likely to succeed in life, OCSS utilizes U.S. cooperation with several other countries to enforce child support orders in the case of non-custodial parents living abroad.
Because – until recently – it has been difficult to apprehend a non-custodial parent who flees the country to avoid paying child support, many laws and partnerships are now in place to make cooperation with other governments about child support easier. The following countries have already established partnerships with the U.S. when it comes to child support:
OCSS should be able to explain the process of applying for enforcement of child support in the above reciprocating countries.
If the non-custodial parent responsible for child support is working for the U.S. government abroad or is employed by a U.S. based company, new laws dictate how to pursue enforcement of these individuals.
