Legal Question in Family Law in Ohio

divorce - child support

I am a stay at home mom of 5 children. My husband and I are contemplating divorce. Out of no where he has asked me to start working nights. If I get a job will this affect his child support payment? How long will I have to work for this to affect the divorce?

Taking a job will affect child support. The figures are based upon the parents' combined incomes. However, remaining unemployed may subject you to an allocation of 'potential income' which would also affect the numbers.

Not only child support, but it could open up the issue of custody. Think about it, if your working nights, who will be with the chidlren. I would suggest doing nothing until you ave had a chance to discuss this with an attorney. Stephen Daray 440.835.8200
