In Alaska, both parents of a child have the legal responsibility to support their child. Regardless if the parents are married or not, Alaska child support dictates that the parents are obliged to support the child or children financially.
The courts in Alaska outline the amount of money parents must pay in child support each month. Alaska child support focuses on the parents’ income and it is the chief factor in determining the amount of money paid.

The parents’ monthly or annual gross incomes from all sources will be tallied when deciding the monthly monetary figure paid in Alaska child support. Unemployment, benefits, and other items are also factored in when determining child support payment amounts.
Once parents determine their gross monthly or yearly income, they can figure out their net incomes. This occurs by subtracting income taxes, mandatory union dues, mandatory retirement contributions, some voluntary retirement contributions, social security contributions, court-ordered payments such as child support for children of other relationships, and the cost of necessary work-related child-care.
