I have learned from the child support division on this:
If you remarry or your spouse remarries there are two things the child support division does.
- Cost of living for both parties. They combined the house hold income up, betweent the husband and wife. 2. It’s to cover the % of cost of living. So, in speaking if there is like $6,000 coming into the home between both spouse’s then they have a %. They then take ‘ONLY’ the NCP income and the NP income and run a calculation sheet. Child support is computted that way.
NO, they don’t use the other spouse’s income as a joint to determine support for that child/children. They are simple getting a cost of living. Has nothing to do with the case. They don’t want to take a NCP who is making $2,000 a month, yet has a $1,500 housing living, yet pay $1,000 in support.
It’s kinda hard for me to explain it. It took alittle bit to understand it when they used my husband income but didn’t use my husband income.
Here is the compute I was done at.
Myself = 2600 NCP = 4777
My spouse = 4900 NCP spouse = 3600
My support to NCP is 466.00 NCP support to me 266.66
Now tell me what happened here? They did their best explaining it to me. I took it as I just explained it to you. I hope you kinda understood this.
