I realize you didn't quit your job but thought this might apply since you mentioned the not working. This is off www.divorcenet.com:
My spouse had a good job which he/she quit because he/she knew the child support I would receive would be partially based on his/her income. What will happen in court?
If your spouse quit his/her job to avoid his/her financial obligations to the children, he/she is in for a nasty surprise. The Indiana Child Support Guidelines provide that an unemployed, or under-employed parent's obligation will be based on his/her "ability" to earn, not his/her actual paycheck. So, if he/she is a brain surgeon who got a job at McDonalds hoping that his/her obligation would be based on $6.00 per hour, he/she will have to figure out a way to pay a doctor's child support obligation on a hamburger flipper's wages.
Maybe your state's guidelines are different? Hope this helps!
