In a divorce or modification of custody, the Court will issue an award of child support. In most situations, this is not a complex matter and statutory guidelines exist that determine the award of child support.

Mississippi law sets the following guideline as the rebuttable presumption of the correct amount of child support. If one parent is awarded primary physical custody, with the other parent having visitation rights, then the parent who has visitation rights will usually pay the custodial parent the following amount for child support:
1 child equals 14% of the adjustable gross income
2 children equals 20%
3 children equals 22%
4 children equals 24%
5 children equals 26%
