North Carolina like most, if not all states considers child support to be the most important payment separated spouses will make, taking precedence over alimony and over one’s personal needs. North Carolina allows parents to enter into separation or custody agreements wherein child support can be agreed to at whatever level the parties deem appropriate. However, if the parties cannot agree or litigation to resolve child support ensues child support is generally calculated and ordered using the child support guidelines to determine a presumptive amount of child support owed by one parent to the other.
