What Counts as Income for Child Support in Ohio?
The Ohio Child Support Worksheet establishes a formula for determining the presumed amount of child support to be awarded. The primary factor in determining the amount of a child support order is the best interest of the children.
According to Ohio law, the following sources may be counted as income when determining child support:
- Salaries and wages
- Overtime pay, bonuses, and commissions
- Pensions in pay out status
- Severance pay
- Rents received
- Social security benefits
- Trust income
- Disability insurance benefits
- Annuities in pay out status
- Unemployment insurance benefits
- Workers’ compensation benefits
- Spousal support received from the current or a previous marriage
- Self-generated income (when self-employed or a business owner)
