“The Child Support Enforcement Program helps children obtain financial support.  Child support is an amount of money that a parent(s) pays on behalf of their children. The amount of child support is ordered by the court.” — NDHHS

Overview

If you are seeking child support or are currently paying child support in Nebraska, it is important to understand how child support is calculated and what your rights and responsibilities are.

Child support in Nebraska is calculated using a specific formula that considers both parents’ incomes, the amount of time each parent spends with the child, and other relevant factors. Nebraska child support guidelines also allow for deviations from the child support amount that may be ordered in certain cases.

Nebraska child support is calculated using a percentage of the non-custodial parent’s income. The Nebraska child support guidelines take into account the number of children, the income of both parents, and the amount of time each parent spends with the children. Child support payments are typically made through wage withholding, although other payment methods may be used. Child support orders can be modified if there is a change in circumstances. Nebraska child support enforcement measures can be taken if a parent fails to make payments.

The Nebraska child support program also provides services to help parents collect child support. Nebraska child support can be a complex issue, be sure to check out our resources and child support calculator below.
