---> 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.
Well, she's since clarified that she DID make $12/hr. but at the time I responded here, NO that is NOT what she said. Yes, she lost her job and didn't want to go back to work, but that is not what she was wanting to base a permanent reduction on. She was wanting to base it on what she said she had proof of that she's always made before and on having an additional child. Not going back to work would make it tough, ESPECIALLY if one were paying more than guideline support anyway. And if they HAD based it on a salary she'd never before earned or was capable of earning, that's more than guideline.
---> It would depend on whether they are working part-time or full-time.
I was going on the basis of full-time regardless. That is what her support was apparently set at...$38K. Sounds like a full-time position.
---> Correct...if she COULD earn $38k by working full-time, she that is what her CS should be based on.
Exactly. However, at first, she'd said she was only capable of earning $20K and never claimed to have ever earned $38K. Now it appears she actually did earn more than that. Yet I'm still trying to figure it out, because she says it was based on $38K AND based on $12/hr. Yet $12/hr. does not equal $38K/yr.
