Delaware, Child support guidelines follow Melson’s formula for computing the child support amount.

  • Melson’s formula provides for a standard of living adjustment (SOLA), which transfers the benefit of the parent’s increased income to the child.
  • The formula computation considers the basic requirements of the child’s education, healthcare, and medical expenses until the termination of the custody.
  • The court has set a minimum net income amount of $1,120 per month for an employed parent to calculate the child support.
  • The SOLA adjustment includes ensuring that the child’s standard of living maintains in a manner that matches the progressing income of the parents.
