ND Child Support
North Dakota Child Support

North Dakota ND child support guidelines state that either parent may be ordered to pay child support. In deciding the right amount of child support, the courts consider what is needed to give the child sufficient financial support, and an education that is appropriate for the child's circumstances.

Official North Dakota ND Child Support guidelines are designed to be in the best interests of the child.

Generally, the obligation for child support in North Dakota ends when the child reaches 18 years of age.

Custody guidelines in North Dakota are also based on the best interest of the child. The best interest and welfare of the child is determined by the court's consideration of the following factors:

1. The love, affection and other emotional ties existing between the parents and the child
2. The capacity of the parents to give the child love, affection and guidance and to continue the education of the child
3. The disposition of the parents to provide the child with food, clothing, medical care (or remedial care permitted in lieu of medical care) and material needs
4. The length of time the child has lived in a stable environment and the desirability of maintaining continuity
5. The permanence, as a family unit, of the existing or proposed custodial home
6. The moral fitness of the parents
7. The home, school and community record of the child
8. The reasonable preference of the child if the court deems the child to be of sufficient intelligence, understanding and experience to express a preference
9. Evidence of domestic violence
10. The interaction and interrelationship (or the potential for such) of the child with any person who resides in, is present in or frequents the household of a parent
11. The making of false allegations about harm to a child by one parent against the other
12. Any other factors considered by the court to be relevant to a particular child custody dispute


The combined monthly net incomes of both parents must be used in determining the obligation and then is divided between the parents based on each of their respective net incomes. The noncustodial parent's proportionate share establishes the amount of the child support order.

If using only the noncustodial parent's monthly net income is within the low income obligation areas of the guidelines, the amount must be compared to the noncustodial parent's proportionate share using both parent's monthly net incomes. The lesser amount then establishes the noncustodial parent's child support order.

The court may also allow for the costs of child care and health/dental insurance between the parents. These guidelines are presumed appropriate unless either parent presents evidence warranting a decision otherwise.
