Child Support Guidelines (Effective September 1, 2015)

The North Dakota Department of Human Services has established child support guidelines to be used by courts in determining the amount a parent should be expected to contribute toward the support of a child. These guidelines apply in any action in North Dakota in which a child support obligation is being established or changed.

Note: Amended guidelines (effective September 1, 2015) will replace the previous guidelines (effective through August 31, 2015). Both amended and previous guidelines are available below. A document that shows the changes made to the previous guidelines, resulting in the amended guidelines, is also available. On this document, deleted text is shown by strike-through and new text is underscored.


Child Support has developed a calculator that will calculate child support based on the guidelines.


Child Support has developed forms that can be used to assist in calculating a child support obligation under the amended guidelines.
