(1) The Child Support Services Division (CSSD) has developed a child support calculation worksheet. Copies of this worksheet may be obtained from the Department of Public Health and Human Services, Child Support Services Division, P.O. Box 202943, Helena, MT 59620 or any regional office. The worksheet is also available on the department's web site at www.dphhs.mt.gov/forms/.

(2) Included for use with the worksheet are a financial affidavit, necessary tables, and information for completion of the guidelines calculation. To assure that these tables are current, the Child Support Services Division will republish the tables annually as soon as practical after release of information upon which tables are based. The tables will be identified by the year of publication or republication.

(3) The child support guidelines worksheets, or a replica of those forms with a similar format and containing the same information, must be used in all child support calculations under the guidelines and a copy must be attached to the support order.
