Child support... What does this mean?

Okay last year I received papers from child support in the mail to fill out if I want a review of child support. And I filled them out and turned them in. Because my sons father lied to the court system and told them he didn't have a job when he in fact did. Today I received a letter that says :

The current support order is not appropriate. We will issue an Administrative Order to modify the amount of the child support order. The current support amount is $50.00 per month. The modified amount is $274.00 per month based on the information provided, or on imputed income if the information was not provided. If your obligation is to be paid in any frequency other than monthly, it has been converted here to a monthly figure. However, you should continue to pay your child support according to the frequency stated in your court order.



I called my child support office and asked them what this meant and the lady was rude and said she didn't know and hung up. Can anyone tell me what this means?

Imputing income simply means that the court treats the parent’s income as if it is more than what the parent is actually earning. If a court determines that a parent is unemployed, underemployed or earning less than what he or she was previously earning to avoid child support payments, the court can impute a certain amount of additional income to that parent

Sounds like they are increasing your child support from 50 to 274 per month.

Are you the custodial parent or the one paying child support?

It means that you should be receiving $274 a month instead of $50

Often if the NCP is unemployed, they will calculate child support based off a full time, minimum wage job. In many states you can't just be unemployed to avoid paying child support.
