I noted above, that my current husband makes significantly more income than I do, and he provides more than half of his support for his pre marriage bills and his two children. I provide more than half of my support for my two children and also some of my income to the joint household bills for all 4 children. If he makes more than I do, does that matter since I provide more than half for my own children who live with us (his step children)

Thank you! So if I file for head of family because I provide more than half of my own support for my own two children than would I include his income on my financial statement if its required since his income is not relevant?
You have put my mind for my children and step children's sakes' to rest. Thank You. One last question, do you know where I can get this form online pursuant to Florida cases?
That form says $500 aren't we supposed to be $750 in Florida?
