Chils support & visitation
« on: May 26, 2004, 06:51:47 AM »
My husband and I just split up and I was just wondering, if he is only bringing home $150 a week due to his previous wife getting $270 in child support, will my child support be below the guidlelines? I did a DPA at the court house and it came up with a negative number and I'm so confused. Some have said his first wife will have her child support re-determined to figure in mine?
and also, I was wondering a fair visitation schedule for an 18 month child. I don't want to keep him from her, but he doesn't have a car and lives with his mother now, and it's not fair to me having to drive her 20 miles back and forth every visit.

What state are you in?

Is the $150 a week gross or net?

Does his Mom have a car that he could borrow?  You could drive one way, with him driving the other.

Ok, I found Florida's Worksheet, but all it did was confuse the heck out of me.  So if anyone from Florida can come help, it would be appreciated.

In MN, income of $500+/month comes across our sheets, so we haven't run into this problem here.  But our worksheet also makes a heck of a lot more sense than yours!

On the driving back and forth, see if your ex's Mom will help with the driving.  

If not, you'll probably just have to deal with a 20 minute drive.

In all actuallity, 20 minutes isn't the end of the moon.  I drive 120 miles (each way) for ex to see our son, my DH drives 65 miles each way to see his oldest.

As you seem to still be on speaking terms with your ex, see what kind of arrangements he can make, if he can't figure out anything yet, make the drive yourself.

If you really want to be fair to your "Child" and your "husband" then consider a schedule such as this, it equates to 50/50 split time with frequent reoccurring visits which is what a child thrives upon, “Both Parents actively involved” I know this because my son is now 23 months old and he has been on one very similar to this since 10 months.  Good luck!
