Basic child support guidelines

The basic child support guidelines are used when one parent cares for the child for more than 75% of the time (274 or more days per year).  The other parent will pay support based on his or her income.  The basic support guidelines are: 17% of gross income for 1 child, 25% of gross income for 2 children, 29% of gross income for 3 children, and 31% of gross income for 4 children.
