## How Child Support is Calculated in Wyoming

Child support payments in Wyoming are calculated using the income shares method. Payments depend on the combined incomes of the parents as well as the number of children. A larger combined income or more children usually means greater payments.

The amount paid or received by an individual parent also depends on income and parenting time percentages.

• If your income percentage (your share of combined income) is higher than your care percentage (share of parenting time), you are probably the payer.
• The receiver is normally the parent with a care percentage above their income percentage.

Wyomingites paying the most child support have high incomes and rarely look after their children. On the flipside, the biggest receivers are parents who (a) work little (b) have their kids nearly all the time and (c) have a high earner as the other parent.

Wyoming child support is calculated differently depending upon how much time each parent has with the child or children. If a parent has custody less than 25% of the time, one formula is used, and another formula is used when the percentage is 25% or more.

Wyoming’s child support program is excellent based on performance measures and benchmarked against other states. Programs are rated according to goals such as finding biological parents, establishing paternity, establishing child support and medical support orders, enforcing child support and medical support orders and modifying existing order.
