They work out the child support based on his taxable income.

Does he work for himself or is he an employee?

He owns his own business. It is a earthmoving business . He walked out of our relationship in 2010 he took me to court For the property I ended up having to get a bank loan to pay him out so that I could keep the property And keep the house which the girls and I live in he also took the car off me too he had a business debit for the machinery which is cleared now cause I am that is the way I could get the house which I am paying off

Good Afternoon

So I assume he has been doing his income tax returns?

You say he earns more? Do you believe it is cash? Have you got any evidence?
