Greetings. Your new child, if she is biologically yours or adopted, should be included in the worksheet. Her children are included because it is the law and she has a support obligation for all children.
Could she work? If she does not work, then day care costs are not counted. It is only “work related” day care expenses that are placed in the worksheet. Also, if she works or could work, she needs some income or imputed income into the worksheet.
Yes, the second job will be used to increase your child support obligation.
No issue on shared parenting. Just get it all in writing. Thank you.
