What Are The Child Support Guidelines?

The Child Support Guidelines are guidelines passed by the Ohio legislature which calculate child support orders based upon the financial circumstances of both parents. Use of these guidelines is required for the establishment or modification of all child support orders in Ohio. The amount of child support that is calculated using the worksheets and schedules contained in these guidelines is presumed under the law to be the correct amount of child support in each case.
