IN THE STATE OF OKLAHOMA, CHILD SUPPORT IS GENERALLY A FUNCTION OF THREE THING:

The number of minor children, the gross combined income of the parties and the number of overnights each parent has with the children annually. Child support may also include the cost of providing health insurance to the minor children.

HOW CHILD SUPPORT IS CALCULATED:

Child support is calculated using the Oklahoma Child Support Guidelines as prescribed by statute. If you are curious as to the amount of child support which may apply in your case, you can use the Department of Human Services Child Support Calculator by clicking here.

SHARING COSTS:

Although not computed into the monthly amount of child support, the parties can expect to share in the costs of uncovered medical expenses, work-related child care and the cost of extracurricular activities.

TERMINATION:

Child support is required until each minor child reaches the age of 18 and may continue past the age of 18 if the child continuously and regularly still attends high school. Once a child ages out a court order is needed before your legal obligation to pay child support will stop.

KEEP IN MIND:

Please be aware that computing child support is more difficult than it appears and any calculations are not final until entered by a Judge or Oklahoma DHS.

“My grandfather had married a woman and several months after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. After the diagnoses, she filed for divorce and believed she was entitled to my grandfather’s savings and benefits. Mr. Buckley represented him in the divorce and made sure my grandfather’s finances were safe and secure. Mr. Buckley did an amazing job, she received nothing and my grandfather’s savings are being used for his medical care. Mr. Buckley’s rates were very reasonable and he remained in contact with the family, letting us know exactly what was happening in the case and how he was handling matters. Thank you, Mr. Buckley!”

“I will always appreciate the type of person who can do a great job while also cutting through the red tape and making things seem simple to me. There were times that I doubted Mr. Buckley because he seemed so confident and I was terrified. But things worked out exactly the way that he said they would and I’ve never felt better represented.”
