What is “guideline” child support?

  • By: Lorilee Desantis
  • Published: August 21, 2020

Guideline child support is the amount of child support which is presumed to be correct. The court uses a software program called Dissomaster to determine the guideline amount of child support. Dissomaster uses many factors in its calculations including, but not limited to, the parties’ income, the amount of time each party spends with the minor child, etc. The Dissomaster program may also be used to calculate temporary spousal support but not ‘long-term’ spousal support.
