Re: Child support
In Oklahoma, alimony is not specifically listed as income which would be included as gross income for the purposes of child support computation; however, it is not specifically excluded in the exclusions, either. Accordingly, since child support shall be computed as a percentage of the combined gross income of each parent, it seems to follow that alimony would be considered income to a parent. Be advised; however, that child support received for children not before the court IS specifically excluded from income. Good Luck.
