She's NOT disputting CS, just that the CS she pays was based on more than she does, has, or ever has made.
---> Actually...she is. She WAS paying $80.00 a week and the lost her job and support was [tempporaily] lowered to $39.00 UNTIL she could go back to work. She has NOW decided NOT to return to work and wants to permanantly reduce her support amount.
---> Now I'm just guessing here (wouldn't want Susan to accuse me of "assuming") because of the amount of child support...that the $20k she is claiming as income is based on LESS than full-time and so her friend IS correct to say that the courts would imput her income at $38k...if that is what she would earn if she worked full-time.
ANY NCP who came on here saying they've always made $20K but their CS got based on $38K would usually be told to seek a modification.
---> It would depend on whether they are working part-time or full-time.
---> In fact...this is what I am going through right now (hearing's in March). Ex wants my wages imputed at XX/hour, even though I haven't made that wage in five years. Frankly, I don't know how the Judge is going to rule on it. Sure...if I lived in the "big city" I could earn that amount, but I don't live there, I live here.
But her CS should be based on what she typically earns regardless.
---> Correct...if she COULD earn $38k by working full-time, she that is what her CS should be based on.
