I receive Social Security Disability. I also receive other income from a business own. I know my business income will effect my disability soon. However, the court is using both sources of income to calculate child support.
My STBX income is around $2700. My gross without the children’s portion of SSD is around $3100. With the children’s portion of SSD it is around $3850. Is she a dependent spouse?
My STBX has always been the recipient of my children’s Social Security. From what I understand, I am supposed to claim the children’s portion as income. When I add it to the gross line of my income, over 30% of my gross goes to child support. I do not make enough money to live. She ends up with $4200. I end up with $2350. Something doesn’t seem right.
How is the children’s SSD benefits used to calculate my total responsibility? Does it go in the gross line of the calculator? Does she take it as income in anyway? Would it go into the other parent’s income box on the calculator, if so which parent?
