Child Support Guidelines In Oregon
The Oregon child support guidelines require courts to consider the gross income of both parents, as well as the parenting schedule of the parties. Courts will also consider out-of-pocket expenses for medical and day care costs. In limited circumstances, a court may deviate from these child support guidelines.
Temporary child support may be awarded prior to the conclusion of a divorce via a temporary order. Moreover, children between the ages of 18 and 21 have legal standing in Oregon to make a motion for payment of child support. In these cases, the court may order child support payments to be paid directly to the child unless the parents of the child both agree otherwise.
