HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.Commissions are considered income and should be factored into the income calculation, unless for example it was a one time bonus not likely to reoccur.You do not need to add in your overtime - but note that you do receive a great portion of overtime.
The bot***** *****ne is the court is going to decide on your income as you present it based on the guidelines. And in that case, you just cannot self impoverish. In other words, what you are capable of earning is going to be estimated by the judge.
You will also want to file for Child Custody/Visitation. You can do that by getting forms from the clerk of the court. The child support and custody/visitation are separate issues.
And if you want to be sure you will get your visits, you need to have them court ordered.
If you do not want to file the custody/visitation forms on your own, then I suggest you consult with a local attorney to do it for you.
Please let me know if you have other questions in this regard. Keep in mind, I can only answer and provide information for what you ask. I do not know what you need to know, unless you tell me. Please rate positive as this is how I get credit for my time and information.Thank you
