Last child support order was from 2009 as it was adjusted when I had a child graduate from high school and age out.
I have another child who graduated this spring and will turn 18 in September so the support will need to be modified again. I am the custodial parent and noting has changed as far as over nights. My income has remained the same. The guidelines were followed last time and it was in the form of a court order
What has changed is that he has a different job with a higher salary I am told. Also, in the 2009 order he was paying over $300 in health insurance for the children through a private policy. Last year he told me his new spouse has the children on her family health insurance at her work.
Is it up to him to file the modification as he will only be responsible for one child in Sept as opposed to two? Or can I file it, although it has not been three years. Does he keep paying the old amount until he files for a modification?
How do I get him to show his new income?
How do I determine how much to report on the worksheet as his health insurance obligation? I do not know if his spouse pays for the family plan health insurance out of her check or if it is a benefit she is not paying for? How will know if they are honest in telling me that and how much to determine one child is on a family policy?
