CHAPTER 48. DOMESTIC RELATIONS.

ARTICLE 13. GUIDELINES FOR CHILD SUPPORT AWARDS.

§48-13-103. Financial contributions of both parents to be considered.

The guidelines promulgated under the provisions of this article take into consideration the financial contributions of both parents. The Legislature recognizes that expenditures in households are made in aggregate form and that total family income is pooled to determine the level at which the family can live. These guidelines consider the financial contributions of both parents in relationship to total income, so as to establish and equitably apportion the child support obligation.
