A New Child Support Law Went Into Effect July 1, 2018

The law which determines child support in Wyoming was changed significantly and those changes went into effect July 1, 2018. Previously, child support was calculated by a formula which applied in most cases where one parent was the “custodial parent,” and the other parent had “normal and reasonable” visitation. A different formula was used if custody was shared and one parent had custody at least 40% of the time.

As of July 2018, a new method of calculating child support applies when one parent has custody 25% of the time or more. This is typically the amount of time a parent with “normal and reasonable” visitation would have custody, and so the new method will be used in most cases.

Depending on several factors, the new method of computing child support could increase or decrease the child support owed.
