Child Support Guidelines and Calculations

Child Support Guidelines

The child support guidelines are the basis for establishing just and appropriate child support obligations for Oregon’s families and children. With the help of the Guidelines Advisory Committee, the Oregon Child Support Program reviewed and updated its child support guidelines in 2013. The updated guidelines are clearer and provide more balance in calculating child support obligations.

The administrative rules for the guidelines and tools like the child support calculator reflect the current guidelines. The guidelines rules are available with commentary to help explain and illustrate the rules. Our guidelines calculator is user-friendly, and an Excel version is available for “power users.
