New Mexico parents now have an easier way to calculate child support payments. The New Mexico Child Support Enforcement Division (CSED) recently released a new worksheet to help parents determine the amount of child support they should pay or receive.
The new worksheet is designed to make the process of calculating child support simpler and more accurate. It takes into account a variety of factors, including the parents’ incomes, the number of children, and the cost of health insurance. It also includes a section for special expenses, such as daycare or extracurricular activities.
The worksheet is available online and can be filled out by either parent. Once completed, the worksheet can be submitted to the CSED for review and approval. The CSED will then issue an official child support order, which will be legally binding.
The new worksheet is a welcome addition for New Mexico parents. It makes the process of calculating child support easier and more accurate, which can help ensure that children receive the financial support they need. It also helps to reduce the amount of time and money spent on legal fees, as parents can now calculate child support payments on their own.
The new worksheet is just one of the many ways the CSED is working to make the process of calculating child support easier for New Mexico parents. The CSED also offers a variety of other services, such as assistance with locating a non-custodial parent, establishing paternity, and enforcing child support orders.
