Rule 90.3 of the Alaska Rules of Civil procedures lays out the legal guidelines and regulations relating to Alaska child support awards.
- The Rules prescribe using the “Percentage of Income model” for computing the child support amount.
- The parents’ combined income is taken as the base for determining the amount to be paid by the non-custodial parent.
- The net income is derived after deducting necessary adjustments like income tax, federal tax, union dues, Medicare tax, etc., from the gross income.
- The percentage will be applied in the rates of 20%, 27%, 33% for one, two, and three children, respectively, and an additional 3% for every additional child.
