Delaware Child Support

In a Delaware divorce, each parent has an equal responsibility to support any children from the marriage. When determining child support, the Delaware divorce court will consider the following factors:

  • Financial resources of the child
  • Standard of living the child would have enjoyed without a divorce
  • Age and health of the parents
  • Child's age, health and station
  • Estate and needs of the child
  • Each parent's earning capacity
  • Parents' amount and sources of income
  • Relative financial means of the parents
