How Does Pennsylvania Determine Child Support?

Courts in Pennsylvania consider several factors when issuing a decision regarding child support. There is no one-size-fits-all formula that the court uses. Instead, the judge will consider the unique influence of factors in your particular circumstances. These can include:

  • The income, assets and debts of each parent
  • Other child support obligations
  • The child custody and visitation arrangement
  • The child’s health insurance needs
  • The number of children
  • The child’s stated preference

If your life circumstances have changed, you may also petition the court for a post-decree modification.
