North Carolina Child Support Guidelines Changes – Self Support Reserve and High Income Cases

The official federal poverty level from 2009 is now the standard: $902.50 net per month or $999.00 gross per month. Now when using Worksheet A, other extraordinary expenses (in addition to payment for child care and health insurance coverage for the children) may be an adequate basis for deviating from the guidelines if the obligor’s income falls within the shaded area.


Also, with respect to high income earners, the entirety of North Carolina General Statutes 50-13.4c is set forth verbatim rather than paraphrasing it.
