If you receive medical disability (not SSI) will this affect the child support amount my son's father is paying?

I've been told by various people it won't, including a good friend of mine who works in child support (out of state). Does anyone else know if the amount I recieve will be less now or does this not affect child support?

  • As others have said the amount more depends on what he makes not what you are bringing in. They will ask you about your income but it won't really affect anything.

  • No, trust me you won't be getting that much. Also, child support depends on what he makes.

  • Child support is more dependent on his income and his other dependents. My sister's husband's ex is getting medical disability from her place of employment, and she still gets $800 a month in child support even though he still has 3 children living at home with him. It didn't affect her amount, she was receiving that before and after.
