Income in child support


#1

When figuring child support for a military member what is counted as income base pay, BAH and or BAS?


#2

Income includes all income from whatever source derived.


#3

My question is this. Do they include base pay only or all the other pays included. Since BAH and BAS is for living expenses I am surprised they would include that for figuring support? Can you be clear in your answers?

Thanks

I stand by my answer. You could always argue to the judge the additional pay shouldn’t be included for one reason or another. I’d suggest you consult with an attorney near a military base who regularly deals with this issue.
