Utah Child Support Calculator

One of the most difficult parts of divorce is figuring out the amount of child support one parent should pay the other to help cover the costs of raising the child. Every situation is different and the amount varies accordingly, but it is always nice to have a some type of guidance to help make the decision as simple and fair as possible.

Luckily the Utah Department of Human Services has a tool called the Utah Child Support Calculator. This tool is designed to help you determine the amount of child support that should be required to be allocated from one parent to the other. While the calculator should be used merely as a guideline, it will help you get a better understanding of what would be a fair child support amount in any given situation.

The Calculator

Since the calculator is merely a guideline to be used to figure out a fair child support amount, it is not very long. It consists of 12 relatively simple questions, like mother’s and father’s monthly gross income and the number of children involved in the child support case, to estimate a fair amount. This is basic information that will be needed when it’s time to figure out the actual amount that should be allocated and to whom.

It’s important to remember that every child support case is different and the Utah Child Support Calculator is not 100% accurate but it is an excellent free tool that will help you get an approximate child support amount.
