How Do Courts Calculate Child Support in West Virginia?

In West Virginia, both parents are responsible for the care and support of their child or children, pursuant to a complex set of guidelines. The amount of child support that a parent must pay depends on factors such as:

  • The number of children
  • Both parents’ respective income
  • Health insurance
  • Day care costs

Each parent is responsible for a percentage of the total amount of the child support order. The parent who has the higher income is responsible for a higher pro rata percentage of the overall amount. To determine the percentage of child support, the Court must determine the gross income (salary or wages, bonuses, commissions, tips, and profits) and adjusted gross income for both parties. We work with these guidelines on a daily basis, and are well able help you through the process.
