How is Child Support Calculated in Idaho?

When children are involved in a divorce or separation, child support is always a priority for Idaho courts. The state uses the "Income Shares Model" to calculate child support, but many variables and factors are considered, even when using a formula. Even more critical, the state's Child Support Services Office can enforce strict penalties when support is not paid.

Navigating child support issues can be difficult, even for financially stable parents ready to support their children. At Bublitz Law, P.C., we ensure that all of our noncustodial clients are afforded every option when establishing child support schedules and can make compelling and informed cases to the court when needed. Likewise, we ensure that our custodial clients get fair support for caring for their children.

Understanding the Income Shares Model

At its basic level, the Income Shares Model that governs Idaho child support calculations is simple to understand. This model approximates what parents spent on the children together and then applies that percentage to their incomes.
For example, if one parent earned $3,000 a month and the other $7,000, the second parent would be responsible for 70% of the funds to raise the child. This, however, is just a base calculation. Other factors, like parenting time, changes in employment, and requests for child support modification or termination, can alter a child support ruling. Contact Bublitz Law, P.C. today for more information on how the income shares model works.

What Happens if I Can't Pay Child Support?

The State of Idaho takes failure to pay child support very seriously, and this offense can compel the Child Support Services Offices to take action against the negligent parent.

Penalties for not paying child support could include:

  • Seizure of incoming tax returns
  • Income withholding
  • License suspension
  • Credit reporting
  • Contempt rulings resulting in jail time

These penalties are why noncustodial parents must have legal counsel to help understand child support terms and establish schedules that are both appropriate and manageable.

Even when formulas are involved, math alone cannot accurately paint a picture of what children deserve and what parents can manage. Here at Bublitz Law, P.C., we ensure that our noncustodial parents' rights are protected, and their voices are heard, even when facing penalties.

If you or a loved one is facing a child support complication, or need their case for modification properly presented in court, we invite you to call our award-winning firm today.
