I am just curious my DH currently pays 1600 a month in CS however because they automatically take half of his paychecks it is literally killing us we can hardly afford anything including groceries, he is going into court this month for a modification hearing, but even with a modification they say he will still be paying at least 1000 a month which isnt too bad but at the same time the problem lyes in the fact that his pay varies from day to day week to week and so on and his base pay is only $400 a week which is only 1600 a month, all the rest is comission so my question is how can they order him to pay more based on his comission when its not a guarenteed amount every month, and what do we do if they order a certain amount and he makes less than that that month? As it is we can hardly afford things for our 10 month old, so what do we do?Answer Question

I totally understand what your saying but if you break it down he pays 1600 a month sot two kids right? so that's 800 a month per child, break that down by weeks and it comes out to 177 per week per kid. Do you spend that much money on you ds each week? figure in food, housing, utlies etc. I know it seems like a lot but trust me as a mom of 4 kids who gets nothing from ex I would be in a world of hurtif not for my DH.Try and go to court and cut it down but just keep in mind that by adding to your income you are taking away some from 2 children.

Like I said I can feel where you coming from and ask the mom that since she is living some where she does not have to pay for if she would be willing to let the state collect below the guideline amount. She has to agree to this or the judge has to soo that there is a valid reason. Bring to court with you your lease, copys of you last 3 months bill and a copy of lats years w2 and last 3 months of DH pat stubs. The judge will put all that your dh pays as well that all what ex pays and put it into a formula that will spit out a number, If when he tells you what that # is and its still to high request to go below the guideline and be ready to tell the judge EXACTLY why. This will be a lot easier if the ex is on broad.
