Does this mean that the guideline worksheet has changed also? If so, has the worksheet been updated on the home page?

what changed???

I didn’t read the whole 21 page document, but am I correctly reading that the court is not to use the guidelines to determine child support if there is a separation agreement in place that addresses the child support issue? It is in the 4th paragraph on the 1st page.

You read right!

Thanks to Pataky v. Pataky (aoc.state.nc.us/www/public/c … 0616-1.htm), the amount of child support specified in a properly-executed unincorporated separation agreement is now deemed to be presumptively reasonable and correct. This presumption may be rebutted, of course, but it’s usually not easy to do so. In other words, our beloved Guidelines are no longer “presumptive” in all cases. if you see a conflict between the holding in Pataky and NCGS 50-13.4, you’re not alone.

Do the new guildlines replace those being used by procedding which started before this was enacted? My seperation/divorce proceeding started in Feb, 2006. Which guielines will be used?

I read in another post that Ms. Fritts stated as of October 1, we have new support guidelines. Does anyone know where I can read about these changes? Thank you.
