Alaska Child Support Calculator | Guidelines

The Alaska child support calculator is may be accessed via the State’s website that automatically estimates the amount of child support that a parent may be obligated to pay on a monthly basis. The child support paying parent’s  income from all sources, including regular income and dividend income, along with information as to how much the paying parent is paying each month in retirement payments, union dues, healthcare premiums and child care payments are used to calculate the amount a paying parent can be expected to pay in child support every month.
