I filed for child support through my state, who in turn took the case to the state he lives in right now. The two states decided on a monthly amount to be paid in child support. Because of being two separate states it took a month after the child support order was finalized to start being taken out of his check so technically he was a month behind by the court order. For the first few months I received the court ordered amount. In August I start receiving over $100 a month more than the court order (not complaining). I figured it was to get him caught up on the month arrears, but never recieved any thing stating such. Well it's caught up and I figured it would.go back to normal. I'm still getting the higher amount though. He does have another child who's mother was ordered a higher amount since she's the older child (again not complaining). To this point I still have received any information on the reason for the higher amount. So I guess I'm curious, would the military adjust the amount being paid for our child to match what he pays for his other child? Is this possibly because he is deployed right now?
Again, I am not complaining one bit, this is giving our child more in savings. I'm only curious if they actually do this. He did tell me once that the Army would adjust child support based on rank and.pay. is that true?
