Maryland Child support laws prescribe the application of the “Income Shares Model” under which the court of law will apportion the gross income of both the parents in proportion to their incomes towards child support.

  • Under the guidelines, if the parent is spending less than 35% overnights per year with the child, worksheet A will be used; on the other hand, worksheet B will be used.

  • The custody will extend until the child turns eighteen or nineteen in the case of children attending high school.
