Overview

When it comes to child support, Vermont is a state that takes the issue very seriously. If you are a non-custodial parent in Vermont, it is important for you to understand how child support works in this state.

The first thing you should know is that child support in Vermont is based on the Income Shares Model. This model calculates child support based on the income of both parents and the needs of the child. The amount of child support that a non-custodial parent will be required to pay will depend on their income, as well as the number of children they have.

If you are a non-custodial parent in Vermont, you can expect to pay your child support through the Vermont State Disbursement Unit. This is the state agency that is responsible for collecting and distributing child support payments.

If you are a non-custodial parent who is behind on your child support payments, it is important to know that the state of Vermont can take action to collect the money you owe. If you are having difficulty making your child support payments, you should contact the Vermont State Disbursement Unit to discuss your options.
