Ask Your Own Estate Law Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
.Based upon my (I am her mother) medical disability status. My daughter is a minor (14 years old), The disability payment is being given to her from Social Security Administration (SSD) as a result of my medical disability. I am the receiving parent.
Estate Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Attorney replied 3 years ago
Thank you for your reply.
If she is receiving SSDI dependent benefits from the parent receiving child support, the payments are not counted towards the paying parent's child support payments. It is only if the child is receiving dependent benefits from the paying parent that the paying parent gets credit for the dependent benefits towards their child support payments AND THEN it is only at the sole discretion of the court, it is not mandatory that they must receive a credit.
