Health Insurance Payment in Child Support Calculator


#1

When using the child support calculator, if, as the non-custodial parent am paying 100% of the child’s health coverage as a separate payment from child support payment, should this figure NOT be used in the child support calcualation


#2

The amount you are paying for the insurance should be factored in to the support calculator.

I may have not worded my situation clearly. I currently pay my ex-wife 100% of the addtional health coverage amount to cover my sons. This is above and beyond what was calculated for child support. I believe that this health coverage amount was also factored into the child support calculation and therfore my question really should be…am I not paying twice for this insurance? As part of the calculated child support amount and then again as a separate payment?

It the amount is calculated into your column on the support calculator that should reduce the child support obligation.


#5

It’s entered into her column though, not mine.

Ah, ok, you need to re work child support accordingly.
