Delaware Child Support Laws

HomeChild Support DelawareDelaware Child Support Laws

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

  • Melson’s formula provides for standard of living adjustment (SOLA) which transfers the benefit of parent’s increased income to the child.
  • The formula computation takes into account 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 of an employed parent in order to calculate the child support.
  • The SOLA adjustment is included to ensure that the child’s standard of living is maintained in a manner that matches the progressing income of the parents.
