Tennessee Child Support Calculator
The Tennessee child support guidelines are based on a shared income model that establishes the dollar amount of child support obligations based on the amount of parents’ combined adjusted gross income and the number of children for whom the child support order is being established or modified.
The most recent changes to the Tennessee Child Support Guidelines became effective May 10, 2020.
