DearCustomer- I cannot tell you the exact amount you will be paying since this is calculated by the court. The general rule is that the court will take the total income of the parties and then use that in the pre set tables to determine the total child support. Let's assume you make 60% of the total income. You would then pay approximately 60% of the total.
That is a very rough way of figuring the amount and doesn't take into account offsetting expense like day car and health care etc. There is only one figure used for the support and, as I said, it is based on the total income of the parties. It is impossible from this website to calculate child support since we do not actually represent clients in individual cases and we do not have sufficient information to make the necessary calculations.
I understand that part I just want to know if the part I get for my son for me collecting Child Support is included in my total income, and can they give him that amount plus a seperate Child Support Amount. Does California do the amount based on Gross income or net income. Nobody seems to know if the amount I get for him on my Social Security Disability record is considered income and how that plays into the Child Support Amount
He makes 3044 +1576 bah, bas, deductions $30 med, dental etc He told the judge his non taxable was 3400.
I get $1450 disability for myself half is taxable half is non taxable, and I have him 20% of the time. My son gets $362 off my Social Security Disability record.
Could you do a quick calculation
