Oregon Child Support Issues & Resources

Oregon Child Support

Oregon child support is based upon official scales and formulas. In calculating Oregon child support, the Court will consider: 
  • the needs of the child; 

  • the parent's ability to pay child support;

  • the standard of living the child would have enjoyed if the marriage had not been dissolved; 

  • the physical and emotional conditions and educational needs of the child;

  • the relative financial means of the parents, including their income, resources, and property; 

  • the potential earnings of the parents; 

  • the needs of any other dependents of a parent; 

  • the desirability of the parent having either sole custody or physical care of the child remaining in the home as a full-time parent; 

  • the tax consequences to each parent; and

  • any other relevant factors.
