Health Insurance and Assumptions and Expenses


Dear D:

Greetings. No, what that quote means is that in calculating the number, extraordinary expenses above $100 per year for the minor children is not taken into account. Thank you.

The below quote was on your website. Does this mean I take the amount of healthcare and subtract the 100.00 for this amount and use that number for the child support calculator or that I am not responsible for the medical bills until over 100.00 in medical is incurred because the amounts taken to add up to 100.00 is taken into account on the child support calculator. “The child support schedule that is a part of the guidelines is based on economic data which represent adjusted estimates of average total household spending for children between birth and age 18, excluding child care, health insurance, and health care costs in excess of $100 per year. Expenses incurred in the exercise of visitation are not factored into the schedule.”
