Wisconsin State Forum / Shared Placement
« on: Jul 19, 2004, 08:46:04 PM »

           Need to hear from anyone in who has had experience getting equivalent overnight consideration from a court in determining their child support obligation. I live in Wisconsin, have joint custody with shared placement. I work third shift and have my child Tues. & Thurs. from school release til 8:00 pm, every other weekend from school release Fri. til Sunday at 8:00pm during the school year. In summer I have the same, plus Mon., Wed. , and the Fri. starting my ex's weekend from 9:00am til 4:00pm. I get three full weeks of vacation time each year and we alternate holidays each year. Wisconsin Law changed Jan. 1st this year and states that equivalent overnights count towards your number of days in figuring the the support amount under shared placement but my attorney says she has not been able to get this for anyone working a back shift, that the court is dismissing any amount of time that is not an actual overnight. The problem being that there is no where to be found a written definition or specific guideline that states what constitutes an equivalent overnight Has anyone dealt with this?

 If BM is getting SSD the children are entitled to payments of their own which should be going to the custodial parent. Your local SS office should be able to help you find out. If BM is getting their checks give the SS office a copy of the custody order, they will redirect the checks.        Rent paid should not make a difference, but you never know. You might want to inform BM and her parents that if BM claims rent is being paid to get a CS reduction, that once it is in the court record the IRS will be informed as it should show up as rental income on BM's parents tax returns. If they did not claim the income and pay taxes on it they could pay interest and penalties plus the extra tax due, plus be audited several years back and over the next few years.

Child Support Issues / RE: social security...

When disabled party receives a retro check, the children will receive a seperate one also. Disabled party may have already received check if she got the first check. Talk to S.S. office. They can let you know if it was already sent and cashed.  We had to go to court to get my Step-daughters back from her mom, even though we had a court order stating it was to be signed over to her father upon receipt. BM cashed and spent it as soon as she got it. Boy was her attorney pissed at her! He found out what she had done in court in front of the Judge! Got monthly payments from her (with interest) in the amount of the next 12 months checks.

Child Support Issues / RE: Child Support Order question

Child support and visitation are seperate matters. The only time it matters is when there is placement time. The amount of placement time time affects child support when it is 30% or more. If you don't have a stipulated agreement from mother or a court order for visitation or placement you need to file for it yourself immediately! Ask for more than you want. Specify days, times, who provides what transportation. Great samples on this site! Good luck.

Make sure you have proof that he has a valid driver's license before you let the kids go anywhere with him driving.

Check your state's laws. The boy's parents can be made to pay for any child support the boy is ordered to pay to the girl for his child, depending on your state laws.

Child Support Issues / RE: disability as income for cp?
« on: May 02, 2005, 11:41:14 AM »
If she is receiving payments for disability from Social Security it is SSD, and it is income! If it is payments from a private disability insurance policy, it is income also. SSI is for retirees only.

Contact the insurance company directly, in writing. I reccommend having your attorney send the letter. Ask for the per child cost for that specific policy. Have them send it to you in writing. Go from there. Since the child is court ordered to be on that policy you do have the right to the info.

Child Support Issues / RE: need advise
« on: Mar 12, 2005, 03:42:53 PM »
You need a definite PLACEMENT (not visitation) schedule. You also need a parenting plan that covers all your issues, approved and Court Ordered. Request mediation and go in with a Detailed plan and schedule. You should have this in place, then talk about child support. Request Equal Shared Placement, cover placement days, holidays, parent's and child's birthdays, vacations, pick up and drop off times, transportation (50/50), health insurance coverage, child tax exemption, Right of first refusal, etc. Don't feel too bad, my husband pays his ex 800.00 a month for one child, but the ex is always broke and we have to buy the childs' clothes, shoes, school supplies, pay for all extra curricular activities, field trips, haircuts, health insurance premiums and do all transport at our expense. We have shared placement and she is supposed to spend 459.00 a month of her income on child. Guess stepdad is charging us rent for her basement room to pay his whole mortgage and then some!
