A Breakdown of Child Support in Wisconsin

When facing separation, divorce or paternity, a common question is, “How much child support do I have to pay?” or “How much child support am I entitled to receive?” Wisconsin Guidelines are provided to answer these questions using a party’s gross income from all sources as a starting point:child support Wisconsin

17%–one child
25%–two children
29%–three children
31%–four children
34%–five children


Child Support Guidelines in Wisconsin

These are guidelines only and apply when one party has primary placement of the minor children. Calculation of child support gets more complicated when placement is shared between the parents; when one party is a serial payer; when one cannot easily determine the gross income of a party; when additional significant expenses, such as health insurance are a part of the child support equation; when there are low and high income payers, etc. Shared placement also requires the determination of who pays variable expenses.

In representing your interests, the child support attorneys at Vanden Heuvel & Dineen, S.C. pay special attention to factors effecting the determination of child support.
