Pursuant to GS 50-13.4(c1), the North Carolina Conference of Chief District Court Judges recently reviewed the North Carolina Child Support Guidelines. The Chief Judges considered comments and information from judges, attorneys, the North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts in the form of a report from the national Center for Policy Research, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, the North Carolina Bar Association, and the public during a public hearing held on June 7, 2018. Following this review, the Chief Judges updated the Schedule of Basic Support Obligations to reflect current tax rates, the most recent Consumer Price Index and the current federal poverty level. In addition, the Chief Judges made a few revisions to the substantive provisions of the Guidelines discussed below.
