It figures I'd wonder this on a weekend lol. But I just got a job and my child support orders are still processing, not finished yet. He just did the genetic testing this week. Is it possible to get my information updated to add the job when the case is still pending?

I never had to give my employment or financial information.

Call your caseworker.

 You never had to tell your caseworker where you work or how much you make? Odd because they base how much you get off how much money both parents make.

But I agree- call your caseworker & let him or her know that you have new info to add to the case.

All you have to do is call and let them know that your income has changed and take them proof of income.
It's actually better to do it now that its in the middle of setting up everything than waiting and having to get it reevaluated later.

 your income shouldn't factor in if he's paying the support... at least in TX its like that. They base the amount off his gross monthly, credit older children and also look at medical insurance costs... good

Same here in AK. I don't recall having to give my income information and I'd taken him to court for custody and child support. Only time I had to provide any form of income info was when I filled out a form in the beginning to get the filing fees waived.

I had to fill out a financial affidavit during my divorce to figure out child support. You might want to call the clerk and ask.

That's odd that some moms don't have to provide their income. Shouldn't support be based on what both parents make...to make it fair? I don't go through the courts for mine..

Call your worker. I have to report my income since its based off what we both make.
