Child support is calculated according to the Nebraska Child Support Guidelines. “The main principle behind these guidelines is to recognize the equal duty of both parents to contribute to the support of their children in proportion to their respective net incomes.” Neb. Ct. R. § 4-201. Some of the factors that may be taken into consideration are contributions to a retirement plan, the cost of health insurance for the parent and/or the child(ren), existing child support obligations for other children, and each parents monthly income or earning capacity.
They may be found at on the Nebraska Supreme Court Website at https://supremecourt.nebraska.gov/supreme-court-rules/chapter-4-children-families/article-2-child-support-guidelines.
