Missouri's new 2009 child support guidelines and basic support schedule are now in effect, as of the beginning of the year. The changes and updates are summarized as follows

  • Credit to paying parent for "other children in their custody "means "other children primarily residing with that parent".
  • There is an increase in the amount of income the custodial parent must make in order for the non-custodial parent to claim a credit for nights of overnight parenting time
  • Definition of "split custody" means when one or more, but not all, of the children primarily reside with each of the parents
  • One factor for consideration to deviate from the presumed amount of support based on income increases from $20,000 to $30,000
  • Assumption that non-duplicated fixed expenditures percentage of the basic child support amount does not vary even with split custody
  • Maximum credit for overnights on line 11 is 34%
  • 2007 Child Care Tax Credit Table Incorporated
  • Increase in Basic Support Amount schedule
