How is child support determined in Maryland?

In Maryland, if your combined household income (before taxes) is less than $30,000 per month (as of July 1, 2022), then child support is calculated pursuant to the Maryland Child Support Guidelines. The Maryland Child Support Guidelines take into consideration each parent's actual income, the cost of work-related child care expenses, extraordinary medical expenses, health insurance, school and transportation costs, and the amount of time a child spends in the care of each parent.
