Child Support


#1

The court may have deviated from the guidelines, or they may not have used the other child support amount because it is in a contract and not a court order.

His housing allowance will be included in the child support amount, as it is techincally income to him.

Another question. How would he be in arrears if the child support was not ordered until Dec. 14 for his son. His son was born Sept 2 of this year. His ex filed when the baby was two weeks old. He just had his hearing on the 14th of Dec. Could it be because He signed the birth certificate and they are dating it back to then?

They are back dating the support to the date that she filed for child support.

Could someone help me please? My boyfriend just went to a child support hearing for his 3 month old son and it was calculated that he pay more than $600.oo in support although he has a pre-existing order(through divorce to his ex-wife) to pay $300.00 for his 9 year old daughter. I know that the $300 is through the divorce, but how is it that that child support was ignored and he was calculated to pay over $600 for his son. Wouldn’t the divore decree with the child support stated be a prexisting order. We are not understanding how the guidelines work. We have been on all the NC calculators for support and come up with less than the $600. He was told that the $300 did not matter and they could not subtract it from his income. Also, with him being military, will they be allowed to include his Basic Housing Allowance in his gross income if that is technically not apart of his income, it is one of those incentives so to speak.
