Oklahoma law requires courts in most cases to follow standard child support guidelines based on several factors including each parent’s monthly income and fringe benefits, each parent’s role as either primary or non-custodial parent, health insurance or day care costs and the number of children in a family.
While courts may diverge from the standard guidelines based on certain narrowly prescribed grounds, parents may often estimate their child support obligations using the same formulas Tulsa County courts follow.
If either parent encounters a significant change of circumstances courts may revise a parent’s obligations through a child support modification.
