The Maryland Department of Human Resources has developed an online child support calculator. The amount of child support a court may order for any particular case may be different from the amount estimated by the calculator. The intent of this calculator is informational. It does not constitute legal advice. The child support calculator is based on statutory guidelines. Click here for child support calculator.
This online application program will assist you in completing a Child Support Worksheet. This worksheet estimates the child support obligation that a court may order a parent to pay toward support of the child(ren) on a monthly basis. Under Maryland law, there is a rebuttable presumption that the amount of child support, which would result from the use of these guidelines, is the correct amount of support to be awarded; however, a court may choose to deviate from the guidelines under certain circumstances.
