In a ruling yesterday, I was ordered to pay a certain amount of child support. I have been given 50/50 custody, but the child support order was based on my working 20 hours of overtime each week at my job based on my last years tax return, and also my National Guard pay, or which I have since retired out of. The purpose of working all the overtime last year, and retiring out of the National Guard, was to be prepared to take my son 50% of the time. Now I'm locked into a situation where because of amount of support I will have to pay, I cannot take my son 50% of the time, because I will have to work to make the support payment. I would have been fine if the judge had computed child support based on a 40 hour work week. In effect, he's ordering me to work 60 hours a week? Do I have any recourse? This is ridiculous.
