Gross income includes?
My EX wants support modification. I figured it on the worksheet from the state site and I agree that the order needs to be adjusted. We went to a mediator and the EX's numbers were all very high and the mediator just wanted to go with a number in the middle and not use the worksheet. That seems wrong to me. My ex is not working so we are assumming at least minimum wage (was over $9/hour 4 years ago) my income is 15/hr not including overtime or once a year profit sharing. W-2 shows over $36000 I am also a weekend warrior (W-2 = $6000) CAN she include everything - I have documentation from employer that OT is not required or guaranteed. I thought modification would be simple with the worksheet To pay a retainer to save $100 or so a month seems wrong. The EX says support for 2 kids should be 750-1000. I am also trying to go to school this year so Overtime will be decreased. I thought second jobs and non-mandatory OT was not included. Not sure where to turn next. Pay her, pay a lawyer, pay the mediator. Running out of money
