North Carolina Child Support Guidelines Changes – Applicability and Deviation

The new North Carolina Child Support Guidelines will be applicable to all child support cases (or modification of child support cases) heard on or after January 1, 2011. There will now be a provision which explicitly indicates that they are applicable to actions brought under North Carolina General Statutes Chapter 50B (Domestic Violence Protective Order Actions). The provision addressing the guidlines’ applicability to retroactive child support will be removed and there will be a new section added which addresses this topic.
