FCIC - Child Support Guidelines Review Subcommittee

The Child Support Guidelines Review Subcommittee of the Family Court Improvement Committee was established by A.O. 2020-10 to review the current statewide child support guidelines and make recommendations about the issues referred for further studies by the 2017 Committee for an Interim Review of the Child Support Guidelines.

In conducting the review, members will:

  • Consider economic and labor market data; the impact of guideline policies and amounts on custodial and noncustodial parents who have family incomes below 200 percent of the Federal poverty level, and factors that impact compliance with child support orders.
  • Analyze case data on the application of and deviations from the child support guidelines, as well as the rates of default and imputed child support orders and orders determined using the low-income adjustment.
  • Provide a meaningful opportunity for public input, including input from low-income custodial and noncustodial parents and their representatives.
