LINE 7, Each Parent's Basic Child Support Obligation

Multiply the total basic child support obligation (amount in box on line 5) by the income share proportion for each parent (line 6) and enter these amounts on line 7. (The amounts entered on line 7 added together should equal the amount entered on line 5.)


If the combined monthly net income on line 4 is less than $600, enter on line 7 each parent's support obligation, which is the presumptive minimum amount of $25 multiplied by the number of children. Then skip to line 15(a) and enter the same amount.
