Iowa has specific state guidelines that should be followed when calculating child support unless the calculated child support award would be much too large and considered unjust or impossible to pay back. These calculations will be applied to both parents to determine the total amount of monthly child support payments for the child. The amount of child support ordered by the Iowa court handling the case will depend on each parent’s net income relative to each other.
