I was just awared full (primary) custody of my daughter this week. My attorney advised me to contact DSS to seek child support.
My ex is self-employed and “claims” he does not have much work. I have proof of his income from Jan - June 2009 which was over $30,000 having ONLY worked 31 days during that timeframe. (He only worked 31 days by his “choice”). I know there is work available to him now…he is just choosing not to work to prevent having to pay child support.
Can DSS use his “potential” earnings as a guideline? Or will they just take his word that he is not working?
Just wondering how this all works when dealing with self-employment and a lying ex.
