State of CA......
Does anyone know if alimony from a subsequent marriage is considered "income" from a CS perpective?

Thanks!!!

Yes, it is income and must be declared both on the child support worksheets and on your federal and state income tax returns.
Men (typically) are always the ones who pay this and may write this off on their federal and state income tax returns.  If you fail to report ALL INCOME, it is considered fraud.

generally, anything taxable on your 1040 is included on the CS calculation.  If the alimony isn't related to the same marriage as the CS, it would be included.

The only exception could possibly be alimony from the spouse who's also paying the child support, from that marriage.  It may be a state statute, it may be a stipulation of your divorce order.
