In accordance with G.S. 50-13.4(c1), the Conference of Chief District Court Judges is reviewing the statewide presumptive child support guidelines. A copy of the current guidelines is available for review online at www.NCcourts.org and in every county at the main branch of the public library, the Office of Child Support Enforcement, and the Office of the Clerk of Superior Court.
The purpose of the judges' review is to ensure that payments ordered for the support of a minor child are in such amount as to meet the reasonable needs of the child for health, education and maintenance, having due regard to the estates, earnings, conditions, accustomed standard of living of the child and the parties, the child care and homemaker contributions of each party, and other facts of the particular case.
The Conference of Chief District Court Judges invites interested parties to comment on the child support guidelines in writing or at a public hearing. Individuals are invited to comment for up to five minutes on the guidelines. Individual case histories are discouraged.
Written comments should be mailed by May 25, 2018, to:
