Child Support Calculations 
 	
  	
Child Support 
  	
Child support is an amount of money paid by one parent to the other parent for the support of the children.  In addition 
to a regular monthly child support payment, other expenses of the children may be divided between the parents as child 
support.  Part B of the Parenting Plan contains the calculation of child support and the allocation of the children’s 
expenses. 
 	
Form 14 	
  Form 14 is a form used to calculate a presumed amount of child support.  Form 14 is part of this parenting plan and is 
found on Part B, Page 8.  The court will usually follow Form 14, however, if the court finds that the child support 
calculated pursuant to Form 14 is unjust or inappropriate, it will set child support at a different amount. 
    Parents must also determine the allocation and amount of other expenses of the children such as medical and dental 
insurance, uncovered medical and dental expenses, day care, and other extraordinary expenses.  These expenses constitute 
part of the child support obligations of each parent.  These other expenses may be included in the Form 14 calculation, or 
they may be paid independently of the child support payment.  
    Parents may agree on an amount of child support and the allocation of expenses.  The court does not have to accept 
this agreement and can set different support amounts.  Even if the parents have agreed on an amount of child support, 
THEY MUST STILL CALCULATE A FORM 14 FOR THE COURT.  As they work through this parenting plan, they 
will also be entering the information that is required for Form 14. 
    Missouri law further provides that “An award of joint physical custody does not preclude an award of child support 
pursuant to Section 452.340 and applicable supreme court rules in determining an amount reasonable or necessary for the 
support of the child.”  §452.375.12, RSMo.  Child support may be appropriate even if both parties have custody of the 
children an equal amount of time. 
 
 
 
 
4.  Party to Pay Child Support   
    One party must be called the “parent paying support” and one person must be called the “parent receiving support”.   
This is true even if no child support is going to be paid.   
 You must check one and only one of the following four boxes. 
  
 	
  Mother will pay regular monthly child support to Father.   
 	
Mother is referred to as “person paying support” and Father is referred to as “person receiving support”. 
 
 	
  Father will pay regular monthly child support to Mother.

  No regular monthly child support will be paid by either parent.   
 	
Mother will be referred to as “person paying support” and Father will be referred to as “person receiving support” 
for the purpose of the Form 14 child support calculation only. 
 
 	
  No regular monthly child support will be paid by either parent.   
 	
Father will be referred to as “person paying support” and Mother will be referred to as “person receiving support” 
for the purpose of the Form 14 child support calculation only.

Cost of Medical or Dental Insurance for the Children 	
    The cost of medical or dental insurance for the children is the monthly amount of any premium paid.  If the parent’s 
employer deducts the amount of premium from his or her pay, then the cost of medical or dental insurance includes the 
amount of the premium paid.  It does not include the cost of medical or dental insurance for the parent, the parent’s spouse, 
or other children that are not covered by this parenting plan.  The cost of medical or dental insurance for the children is 
included on Line 6c of Form 14. 
  Form 14 states: “If the amount of the actual health insurance costs for the children who are the subject of this 
proceeding is not available or cannot be verified, the amount of the health insurance costs attributable to the children who 
are the subject of this proceeding shall be calculated by dividing the total monthly costs for the policy of health insurance 
by the total number of persons for whom the costs are paid or to be paid and then multiplying the resulting figure by the 
number of children insured under the policy who are the subject of this proceeding.”

    Missouri law provides that “[u]nless otherwise agreed in writing or expressly provided in the judgment,

receive child support shall have the duty to notify the parent obligated to pay support of the child’s 
emancipation and failing to do so, the parent entitled to receive child support shall be liable to the parent 
obligated to pay support for child support paid following emancipation of a minor child, plus interest.”  
§452.370.4, RSMo. 
 	
 	
Income Tax Considerations 	
 
19.  Income Tax Dependents 
  The parties shall be entitled to claim the minor children as dependents for income tax purposes as follows:  
(Person paying support must be current with all support obligations as of December 31 of the tax year in which 
the child is to be claimed.  Each parent will sign any appropriate documents to allow the other parent to make 
such claims.) 
 
  
    NOTE:  The Form 14 calculation assumes that the person receiving support will claim the children as

Payment of Child Support and Wage Assignments 	
 	
 
Wage Assignment 	
  A wage assignment means that the child support is taken directly out of the paycheck of the person paying 
support.  The amount withheld is sent to the Family Support Payment Center.  The Family Support Payment 
Center will then forward the support to the person receiving support.  Child support withheld pursuant to a wage 
assignment cannot be sent directly to the party receiving support.  A record will be kept of all payments.   
    If a wage assignment is not ordered, then the child support may be paid directly to the person receiving 
support.  The person paying support may also voluntarily send payments to the Family Support Payment Center.  
If the child support is not paid to the Family Support Payment Center, it is extremely important that each parent 
keep accurate records of the amount of child support paid.  This means that the party paying support may not 
receive credit for his or her payments if he or she does not have receipts or cancelled checks.  Because of this, it 
is proper to request a receipt from the parent receiving support.  
    If the person paying support is currently unemployed or self-employed, the wage assignment may still be 
ordered, but it will not take effect until the person paying support begins receiving regular wages.
