DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL

Child support guidelines. Requires the supreme court of Indiana to adopt child support guidelines for application in all child support proceedings. Requires that the guidelines must use a net income approach and must include a self-support reserve for both the custodial parent and the noncustodial parent in an amount equal to the federal poverty level for a household of one person. Creates a rebuttable presumption that a child support award in the amount that would result from application of the guidelines is the correct amount of support. Specifies that the presumption is rebutted by a written finding or specific finding on the record that the application of the child support guidelines would be unjust or inappropriate in a particular case. Requires the supreme court to review the child support guidelines at least once every four years. Requires the supreme court to require all courts to apply the child support guidelines beginning January 1, 2001.
