The Maine child support rules follow the “income shares model” for determining the liability of each spouse towards child support in case of divorce.

  • The parents’ gross income will be computed based on the schedule of necessary child support obligation schedules as set out in court from FM 84.
  • There are separate methods for computing child support for children up to 12 and for kids of 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.
