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 Wyoming.
Disclaimer: 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 at issue will primarily live with one parent. They are not intended to estimate child support for joint physical custody or split custody arrangements.
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. Finally, these calculators may be based on older or outdated state guidelines or calculations and may not take into consideration state or federal tax implications on income.
These and many other factors can affect a child support order entered by a court.
What agency can help me with Wyoming child support issues?
The Child Support Enforcement Division of the Wyoming Department of Family Services is an agency that handles all matters related to child support. Child Support Enforcement offers a number of services related to child support, including:
What will my child support payments be?
The amount of a monthly child support order is determined by state guidelines that take into consideration the needs of the child/ren and each parent’s responsibility and ability to provide financial support for their child/ren. To get an estimate of what your monthly child support payments may be in Casper, Cheyenne, Jackson or elsewhere in the state, use the child support calculator above.
Can child support payments be modified?
Child support payments may be modified whenever either parent’s financial circumstances change significantly enough to warrant re-addressing the matter of child support. Child support payments may also be modified after a certain amount of time has passed since the initial order was placed. Child Support Enforcement can provide you with details of what criteria must be met in order to seek a modification of a current child support order.
Who is eligible for services from Child Support Enforcement?
Child support services through Child Support Enforcement are available to any parent who is owed child support, was ordered to pay child support or wants to establish paternity and/or collect child support—regardless of need or income.
Can Child Support Enforcement services help me with child custody issues?
No. Child Support Enforcement does not have the authority to handle matters related to child custody and visitation. It is important to speak with an experienced Wyoming family law attorney if you have question about child custody or need help in any matters related to child custody.
My child’s father/mother is not paying child support. What can I do?
If the child support is court ordered, you may seek the assistance of Child Support Enforcement. Child Support Enforcement has a number of measures they can take to enforce court-order child support agreements. If you do not have a court-ordered child support agreement in place, Child Support Enforcement can help you establish one.
Where can I apply for Child Support Enforcement services?
