How is support determined?

The amount of child support awarded by the court is established in accordance with the Pennsylvania Support Guidelines, which are in the Pennsylvania Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 1910.16. The Support Guidelines were developed on the premise that the child(ren) of separated or divorced parents should receive the same proportion of parental incomes as if the parents were together.
