Child Support

Child support in Ohio is calculated in accordance with a child support schedule and worksheet governed by Ohio Revised Code Sections 3119.02 through 3119.24. When computing child support, the statute defines “income” in two ways: if a parent is employed full-time then it means the gross income of that parent. If a parent is unemployed or underemployed, then income is defined as the sum of the gross income of that parent AND any potential income of that parent.

For the full definition of gross income and potential income see Ohio Revised Code Section 3119.01 (C) (subsection 7 and 11 respectively) (scroll down to see the definition effective after September 28, 2012):

The Ohio Child Support Customer Service Portal allows customers with an active child support case a secure environment in which they can view their child support case information on demand. Customers are able to view and print up to two years of child support payment data, as well as view address, employment, health insurance and support order information that is on file with the child support agency.
