How Is Child Support Calculated in Missouri?
Missouri uses the Percentage of Income method to calculate child support. This method takes the parents' incomes and determines the percentage that can be allocated to the support of the child. This amount is then divided by the number of children and the parent who has the higher income is ordered to pay the difference.
In addition to the basic support amount, Missouri courts can order additional expenses, such as:
- Health insurance – The parent with the child is responsible for providing health insurance for the child.
- Dental and vision care – The parent with the child is responsible for providing dental and vision care for the child.
- Child care – The parent with the child is responsible for the child's day care expenses.
- Education – The parent with the child is responsible for the child's education costs.
Missouri courts can also order additional expenses, such as:
- Loss of income – If the parent with the child has to miss work due to their parenting time, they may be responsible for the loss of income.
- Travel expenses – If the parent with the child lives more than 60 miles away, they may be responsible for the travel expenses.
There are additional expenses that can be ordered, depending on the circumstances of the case.
