When the CS was calculated, the BM was making a lot less than BF. BF was ordered to pay the majority of the daycare costs in addition to CS. The child is now 7 and hasn't been in full time day care for 2 years now, but the daycare costs are still in the CS order.
BF isn't sure if he wants to have his order evaluated because he makes more now than he did then and is afraid it will go up (it's already around $950 a month), but her income is higher now than it was then by nearly 10k and he has another child that is with him full-time as well that will be factored into the equation.
My thought is that if it goes up, then it goes up - but at least it isn't higher by fraud - BM knows her kid isn't in daycare anymore and didn't inform the CS office of the change.
Long story, but BF is not involved with the child, never has been, and never intends to be. He made BM well aware of that and she let him know she didn't care as long as she got her money (pregnancy resulted from a stupid mistake of trusting a woman who says 'oh that's okay' when he says 'i don't have a condom' during a two week fling.)
1. He's making about 10k more a year as well - but has had another child since then - do you think that will 'cancel' the income increase? - In our state, it doesn't matter which child came first - they are both calculated as needing support, so it doesn't take the first into account and assume he'll use whatever is leftover to support #2.
2. Is there any punishment that would befall the BM for collecting daycare costs as part of CS when there was no daycare?
