The Montana Child support guidelines as specified in the Montana Administrative Rules, recommend the application of Melson Formula on net income of the parents.

  • The income of the parents in the form of royalties, dividends, salaries, etc. is taken into account for determining the gross income.
  • A further adjustment in the form of SOLA (Standard of Living Adjustment) is also added to the gross income in order to pass on the benefit of parents’ increased income to the child.
  • The court also allows for necessary expenditure that parents have to incur for their own sustenance before arriving at the child support amount.
