Self-Employment and Support Calculations
Parents have an absolute legal obligation to support their children financially until emancipation, which occurs when a child turns 18 years of age or graduates high school, whichever occurs last. Typically, one of the more straightforward aspects of a divorce is the determination of child support, because Pennsylvania has established support guidelines, in which the parents’ combined net monthly income is cross-indexed against the number of children, in order to determine a monthly support amount. The legislature determined that this monthly support amount is what it takes to provide for the number of children in question.
