How Child Support is Calculated in Mississippi
The income percentage technique is used in Mississippi to determine child support obligations. The amount of payments is determined as a percentage of the non-custodial parent’s income. The amount normally required to be paid will increase with the number of children involved.
The Mississippians that pay the most in child support are wealthy and have a large families. Parents who are the primary caregivers for several children and whose paying parent has a high income are the top recipients of child support.
You must know the non-custodial parent’s gross income in order to determine support. Gross income is the total amount of money a person makes. Either parent may ask the judge to modify the amount of child support before the court issues an order.
When a parent “rebuts the presumption” by providing proof that the amount would be unfair, the court may increase or decrease the amount.
All of Mississippi, including the cities of Jackson, Gulfport, Southaven, Biloxi, and Hattiesburg, is subject to the state’s child support laws.

Parental consent or the judge overseeing your case’s discretion may be used to modify support payments.
Challenging the Amount of Child Support
The government anticipates that your child will get the appropriate amount of child support as established by the criteria.
There are instances, though, in which the overall sum or the way it is allocated discriminates against a child or parent.
Any parent may ask the judge to change the amount of payment before such a child support order is in force.
The court may raise or lessen the amount of assistance when a parent presents evidence that the amount would be unfair (a procedure known as “rebutting the presumption”) depending on the following factors:
- Costs related to health, mental health, education, or dental care are unusual.
- The child’s own means of support.
- The custodial parent received the alimony payment.
- changes to the salaries or spending of one or both parents during the year.
- Considering that older children have more complicated needs, the child’s age.
- Even though addressing such needs goes beyond the norms, special requirements are often covered by the family budget.
- The scenario of parenting in question.
- The total amount of the assets owned by both parents and the child.
- The price of daycare.
- Any additional change necessary to achieve a just outcome, including but not limited to an adequate and sensible existing cost or debt.
