Thank you for your follow up.
Generally, the court would determine the percentage of the overtime earnings that should be paid as part of the child support and it determined in the same way as a regular child support, on a case by case basis, based on timesharing and overall income.
Once the percentage is determined for the overtime earnings amount that should go to child support, the court would "Smith-Ostler" order which will state the exact percentage that the parent has to pay toward child support from the overtime earnings.
I wish you the best of luck!
