How is the amount of child support determined in Mississippi?

Child support's determined by taking the adjusted gross income of the non-custodial parent and multiplying it times the number of children in the custody of the custodial parent. For example, the statute reads that 14% for one child, 20% for two children, 22% for three children, and so on. So they would take the number of children, multiply it by the adjusted gross income, and the percentage, and then that's how you would end up with the amount of child support.
