Newly Published Research on Child Cost Tables
An important paper co-authored by R. Mark Rogers, economist, and David Standridge, attorney headquartered in Albuquerque, New Mexico, just published “Child Support Cost Tables: The Case for Second Household Adjustment, in the Summer 2019 edition of the New Mexico Law Review. The article focuses on the economic and legal problems with using intact family data for states’ Income Shares child cost tables. Traditional cost tables overstate parents’ ability to pay and lead to too high child cost tables. To correct related problems, a second household adjustment should be made to traditional Income Shares tables. This issue is important for states undergoing quadrennial reviews of child cost tables.
