HB 12 – Presumptive child support amounts- updated tables

We Support This Bill.

Summary: AN ACT relating to child support; amending the presumptive child support amounts; and providing for an effective date.
Why It Matters: Raising a child is expensive. Presumptive child support tables take into account the combined income of parents to determine the amount of child support that is obligated. This amount is paid to the custodial parent to offset expenses and contribute to the child's upbringing. A third of mothers are unmarried in Wyoming, which means that child support can often be a crucial part of a family's finances. The child support tables have not been updated in about a decade. For the financial health of the family, they should be updated to reflect today's economic state.
