    Received new court paper's redoing child support. The lawyer has based the amount of support on my ex's one job with the state however, he has a personal consulting firm and works as an organist for a church.

    Don't they have to include the whole income in figuring child support. Any help would be wonderful. My ex is wanting me sign the court order otherwise it is scheduled to go to court in Oct. I live in MO now so this is going to be difficult for me to attend. The cost of a lawyer is hard for me since I make 25,000 and he makes 139,000 a year without the other two jobs included.

    Yes, ALL income is to be included in the calculation. Go to http://courts.state.ar.us/courts/acs_guidelines.html to find what is considered as income.

      Thanks

      I heard directly for the child support enforcement in the state of Arkansas and they told me the same thing. My ex is trying to hide money and guess he doesn't think I'm not smart enough to check it out. If he would have just left me alone, I wouldn't have to hire a lawyer again.

      Thanks for the help

        Your choice. BY the time you hire a lawyer, any increase support amount will be ate up with legal fees, so if you have proof of this employment, I suggest getting it together and sending it in to the court and taking time off to go to ther hearing yourself. Also, if you are to represent yourself, file that with the court and ask for the court for the ability to send and subpoenas to these places that pay him and ask them to answer interoggatories or supply copies of existing work records about his job and pay, and get the answers back and use them in court.
