No need to drive to hearings or hire high priced lawyers. If you google PA Child Support Home Page or go to www.childsupport.state.pa.us you will travel to a website that allows you to calculate the amount of support due using Pennsylvania’s guidelines. You must agree to the disclaimer on the site but once there, the site’s left side column has a category called “General Information” and three up from the bottom of the menu is a “Support Estimator”.
We have not tested the site and there are many factors to be considered beyond what the calculator shows as reflected in the disclaimer. But it is a good place to rough out how much you owe or should collect under the guideline system in Pennsylvania.
