No, the child support is almost never "imputed" based on a profession. The best way to do it is to get the parent to provide copies of the business documents and then get an accountant to go over those and provide testimony to a judge on what the gross amounts mean in actual income.

There is no other way to do it that is reliable and likely to be accepted by the judge.
