If one parent has primary placement of the minor children in a divorce how is child support amount set?
The Wisconsin Administrative Code, Chapter DCF 150, sets forth the standard percentage of gross income due from the non-primary parent as and for child support. The percentages are as follows:
(a) 17% for one child;
(b) 25% for 2 children;
(c) 29% for 3 children;
(d) 31% for 4 children; and
(e) 34% for 5 or more children.
The amount of child support may vary due to the payers level of income.
