Child Support in District of Columbia
A custodial parent will have to open a case with the District of Columbia Child Support Services Division. Under the guidelines the custodial parent must fulfill the requirements, and then the non-custodial parent will have to provide financial support for the care of the child or children. According to guidelines, the child that spends thirty-five percent or more of their time with each of the parents, then that determines having "shared" custody. Sole custody is defined as a child that does not spend thirty-five percent or more of their time with each parent. Both types of custody will be calculated differently through the statutory procedures. An income shares model shows both parents have a duty to support their child. A child is entitled to support until the age of 21, according to statute.
