Every time the tax laws change, that might also mean that your guideline child support payment will change. 2010 was no exception. The reason why this happens is because child support is calculated by using the parents’ net disposable income, i.e, income left over after paying taxes. If you or the other parent is now paying more or less taxes than you were before, due to the new laws, then the child support payment may be modified. It may be modified only slightly, but it may also be significant.
This may be especially important to look into if it has been a long time since child support has been calculated. Over time, as income changes, a person’s tax bracket might change with it, or other things might have changed, such as how much money one gives to charitable causes. The laws that affect how taxes are calculated will also affect child support.
