PART 1. GENERAL PROVISIONS.
§48-13-101. Guidelines to ensure uniformity and increase
predictability; presumption of correctness.
This article establishes guidelines for child support award
amounts so as to ensure greater uniformity by those persons who
make child support recommendations and enter child support orders
and to increase predictability for parents, children and other
persons who are directly affected by child support orders. There
is a rebuttable presumption, in any proceeding before a court for
the award of child support, that the amount of the award which
would result from the application of these guidelines is the
correct amount of child support to be awarded.
