PLEASE BE ADVISED:

The State of Ohio enacted new Child Support guidelines effective March 28, 2019. The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) is in the process of creating a child support calculator which complies with these new guidelines. This Court's website will be updated with the new calculator as soon as one becomes available. Until that time, the Court’s Self-Help Center, located on the 3rd Floor of 800 Broadway, has computers with child support calculators for use by unrepresented litigants.
