Title: Question on insurance and new CS laws
Post by: Crockpot on Apr 18, 2007, 08:27:17 AM
Hello.  I’m writing this from my SO account.  We are going to be married in September and will probably use my employer’s insurance for us and his kids.  He is NCP.  His divorce was before the new CS laws and took into account his net income.  

Will the insurance costs coming out of my paycheck affect his CS if ever recalculated?  His net income will increase but only on paper, it will come out of my paycheck.  My understanding is when done on the new CS system they look at gross income.  Anyone have any advice or experience with this?

Thanks!

yes on the new system they will look at gross income and health cost, not that you or he is spending it

I would double-check with your HR department.  I was going to do the same thing for my stepkids that dh is NCP of - I could only cover stepkids if they lived with me and dh had custody - that was the insurance company's rule.
