Idaho Child Support Guidelines
Child support in Idaho is governed by guidelines that consider:
- the income of each party
child custody arrangement
- the number and ages of children involved.
If you are paying support for other children or have other children living
with you, or if you claim the children for either Federal or State tax
exemptions, this can also impact your child support.
The court may deviate from the guidelines for many reasons, including but
not limited to when the court attributes or imputes income to a parent,
if the parties have a nontraditional child custody arrangement, if the
parties agree that they do not want wish to receive/pay child support,
or if it is in the best interests of the child.
When determining the amount of support each parent is responsible for,
the court utilizes a calculation system known as the "Income Shares
Model." This is an estimation of the amount of money both parents
would spend on the child if they lived in the same home. The amount is
divided between both parents and the non-custodial parent is responsible
for giving their share of the payment directly to the custodial parent.
Collecting & Enforcing Child Support Orders
While a child support order is a legal obligation, sometimes the non-custodial
parent chooses to not make their payments. Whether this is due to the
fact that the non-custodial parent cannot afford to make payments, or
they do not wish to, they must uphold the agreement or face legal repercussions.
If you are a custodial parent and are having trouble getting the other
parent to pay child support, you should never take the matter into your
own hands. It is best practice to contact a Boise child support attorney
who can help you seek legal action against the other parent and collect
