I know childsupport will be reassessed every 3 years by the state. My question is does the state automatically change the amount paid per month or does the custodial parent have to take it to court again to get it adjusted?
My husband already pays $695 a month plus insurance for 1 kid. This amount was set 3 yrs ago, before we had our son. Every year he gets a $1 per hr raise and he has been there 3 yrs. I have already done some research and found that since we have a son and he supports him full time, it would drop his child support amount from 20% to 17.5%. We aren't really worried about it changing even with the raises he has gotten over the last 3 years because it should stay about the same factoring in now that we have another child. But my other question would be on overtime. Overtime isn't consistant where he works. Some times its all you can take, sometimes it is just a few extra hrs a week, and sometimes it is shut down completely and those periods are usually for months. Will overtime be factored into his childsupport, or will it only be the straight 40 hr week?
