New Hampshire Child Support

New Hampshire child support is based upon official guidelines. The amount of child support arrived at under the New Hampshire guidelines is presumed to be correct unless it is shown that the amount is unjust or inappropriate. The factors for consideration for deviating from the New Hampshire child support guidelines are: 
  • any extraordinary medical, dental, or educational expenses of the child;

  • a significantly higher or lower income of either parent; 

  • the economic consequences of the presence of any stepparents or stepchildren;

  • any extraordinary costs associated with physical custody;

  • the economic consequences to either parent of the disposition of the marital home; 

  • any state or federal tax consequences;

  • any split or shared custody arrangements; and

  • any other significant factor.
