New Job and Child support!


#1

Dear sam38:

Greetings. Yes, if one of the parents make MORE money, it may increase the child support. On the other hand, it may even decrease the child support, depending on the total amount of income.

No, the child support worksheet will be done again at the time of court. Thank you.

Thank you.

What if the parent who has sole custody of the child, changes job, making more money and has not received a payday at that job yet. Will that be changed before the court date?

Also, would you please tell me how much to list per child, when using the child support calculator (1-b responsibility for other children).

I do appreciate your time, thanks.

Dear sam38:

Greetings. If the person has sole custody and has changed jobs, and you are the paying spouse, you may want to wait until the next hearing. Check the calculator and see how different income number affect the bottom line.

As far as obligations for other children, if you have children living with you that are adopted or biologically yours, you generally put in the number of other children. If you have a child support obligation for another child, then you put in the amount of support. There are two different spots for these numbers, so check carefully. Best of luck.

Hi:

If a parent leaves one job and goes to another job making MORE money, will that amount have to be used to determine the amount of child support? I am asking this because, the child support is scheduled for hearing in court next month and the salary sheet has already been computed. Will the attorney have to make out a new pay sheet?

Thanks!
