The state of North Carolina has established a precise and calculated way in which child support payment amounts are ordered. Those payments can go beyond what a non-custodial parent brings home in a weekly paycheck. However, any hidden income can lead to much higher weekly child support payments.
An order for child support is rendered based on the adjusted gross income of the non-custodial parent. It basically takes the salary of that parent and deducts a percentage in order to pay the necessary expenses for a child’s cost of living.
