HomeChild Support MaineMaine Child Support Laws

The district of Maine follows the “income shares model” for determining the liability of each spouse towards child support in case of divorces.

  • The gross income of the parents will be computed based on the schedule of basic child support obligation schedules as set out in court form FM 84.
  • There are separate methods for computing child support for children up to the age of 12 and for kids of the age 12 to 17.
  • The child support will continue until the child turns 18 or if directed by the court until 19 if the child has not completed high school education.
