I’m interested in the response to this one as well.
Child support is supposed to be paid by both parents, based on variables including the income of both parties. My ex wife has never revealed her income to me, so I have no way of knowing for sure if we are calculating CP correctly. I, too, had her tax return and other income verification documents subpoenaed, but they were never produced.
I don’t understand how anyone can consider it fair for me to pay a certain amount of CP when her income isn’t included in the figures. I’m happy to support my children… but I think I’m paying more than should be required. Caring for children financially should be the responsibility of both capable parents - not just the father (especially when the mother made a choice to leave the marriage).
This seems to be a way that she can get alimony from me when it wouldn’t have been available otherwise since she had an affair and abandoned the marriage.
