I am wondering if the verbiage used in the Child Support

I am wondering if the verbiage used in the Child Support Stipulation previously filed with the court would exclude me from having to pay child support going forward. For financial reasons I had to go back to doing contract work which pays more, and now she wants to file to modify child support yet again. Here is the verbiage in the document.Petitioner has provided adequate evidence of his recent reduction in income and the Parties agree that taking Petitioner's new income into consideration and applying the child support guidelines results in neither party owing the other any child support both going forward and retroactive to August 1, 2015.I know this next part doesn't matter but if she needed the money that would be one thing, but her & her fiancé make over $150K annually. I however am the sole provider for my family of 5 and paying any amount is going to put me in the red.So from a legal perspective, I am hoping that since they put the verbiage in there about 'going forward', that it would exclude me from future child support obligations.

My ex's lawyer keeps postponing court dates And keeps

My ex's lawyer keeps postponing court dates And keeps insisting I earn $2500 a month when I've never earned this amount in my life. She also filed a declaration saying I left 3 years ago and abandon my familyJA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: This is all about my ex being as nasty to me as possible with no limits to his abuse to keep me and my children financially unstable on my end because he doesn't want to pay child support I have gone through so many emotions and I'm in an impossible place now. Want to know if I should fire my lawyer or if you think he's actually trying to help me I owe him money and he knows I can't pay. He never responded to the declaration saying I left three years ago. We came to an agreement that is not fair as far as child support goes but I signed it just to end the divorce (hence agreeing I make $2500 a month) I've since turned in my tax return to DCSS The judge reviewed our agreement and sent it back. Nobody (my lawyer) won't tell me a thing.JA: OK got it. Last thing — Family Lawyers generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied).

I have a corporation which I utilize to charge my services out. My expenses to run my business are minimal. I then draw a salary at about 60% of the total earnings from that corporation which is my reported individual t4 income. I retain the remaining earnings inside my corporation and they are held there and rarely used as they were always intended for retirement savings.Upon separation, I would like to understand what income would be utilized to determine potential spousal support and child support. Is it the corporation income or my individual T4 income ?
