How is child support calculated when salary is mos

Commission and bonuses are included in income for child support. Sometimes we look at the earning history and other times we agree for the spouse to pay a percentage of the bonus as child support. These would be two different ways to reach agreement on this issue.

I would like to know if anyone knows how child support is calculated in North Carolina when the non-custodial parent’s income is primarily commission-based? (He makes $5/hour plus commission).
