  • Another Question

    Sorry had another question from Nebraska. During the first CS order in 2003, I was only working PT making $465/mth. Ex was making $2500/mth. I have not worked for the past 9 months but before that was making $950/mth with Ex making $4000/mth now. Will I be looked down on since I've chosen to stay home with the children instead of sending them to daycare and working just to pay daycare? (Which was coming to $811 per parent. Which obviously my whole share was going to daycare, seems like a waste to me IMO) Would calculations go off of my "earning capacity" of $950/mth or what I earn now $0/mth?I know this seems like a odd question, hope someone has some answers..thank you.

    calculations for child support would also include expenses such as child care costs that benefits both parents by allowing both to work and earn income. Your ex- should have been responsible for half (at least) of the child care costs prior and the math should be a wash. Make sure you have documentation on the child care costs to show the court.

      I have the documentation for child care..he did pay half which was $811 for him and $811 for me..(total was $1622 a month) Without having any type of degree here in NE I can not find a job that will pay more than $ 7-8 an hour, which as I stated the pay is eaten up by my 1/2 of childcare. It's kind of a bad situation, except for my kids which have benefited greatly from having a parent around again.

        No, you will probably not be looked down on, but don't expect to have his support raised to make up the difference caused by your decision. Your income level will be imputed into the calculations as if you were still employed. And now that the munchkins are not in daycare, those expenses will not be entered.

              Mommyof4 may have a handle on this one for Nebraska? But case law here in Alaska (and I thought? I saw where one of these had been elevated to the federal courts and then kicked back to the state...which state I don't know), and again this is Alaska....both parents were on the hook for college past the legal emancipation age of 18 or end of high school. The case I'm thinking of though, I believe, was one where the parents had agreed to share college costs in their decree but then one parent pulled rank and sent the child to a more expensive school than the other agreed to. He (the plaintiff) ended up having to pay for the more expensive school even though he had no say in selecting the school.

              my response is pretty muddled based on my poor memory....so to summarize
              There are cases where yes, both parents are responsible through college. I accept that I should have butted out of this one....and will take my lumps in silence

                No, sorry, I wasn't clear. I was asking if she was ALSO in Nebraska, like the OP. Different states have different guidelines, so I was asking what state she lives in, in a round about convoluted way. Sorry. I will try again.

                Ittzia, what state are you in? If you posted it, I completely missed it, sorry.

                    In CA, child support stops when the child is 18 or graduates high school, which ever comes last. If the child support is court ordered, and arrearages are owed, child support will continue to be collected until all arrearages are paid.
