Or. Admin. R. 137-050-0765 - Agreed Support Amount

Current through Register Vol. 61, No. 4, April 1, 2022

(1) It is in the best interest of children to have support orders reached by agreement of the parents. Entering orders with the parents' consent promotes positive parental involvement and prompt, consistent payment of the support obligation. Parents who enter into agreed support amounts avoid the uncertainty of hearings and possible appeals.
(2) The guideline support amount and rebuttal factors are intended to meet the needs of most families. Likewise, the rebuttal factors in OAR 137-050-0760 address most situations in which the guideline amount is inappropriate. However, there will be families for whom the support amount, even rebutted, is not correct and who value the certainty of agreed support amounts.
(3) In consideration of foregoing administrative hearing rights, the parties may consent to a support amount that is within 15 percent of the amount determined under rules 137-050-0700 through 137-050-0760. The order must be entered with the written consent of the parties.
(4) Apply any change to the support amount under this rule proportionally to cash child support and cash medical support, and to minor children and Children Attending School. Round each result to the nearest dollar.
(5) An agreed support amount entered pursuant to this rule is presumed to be just and appropriate within the meaning of ORS 25.280.
