Any one have any luck with getting theirs reduced due to x obtaining a better job?   If so please enlighten me.

Good luck with that, most likely you will just get hit for more. Cost of living since the divorce and I am sure you have had a raise or two...

It will never happen; CS is based on what you make––her income will not even figure into the equation.

Not in Wisconsin anyway..its a formula based on what the two parents make and the percentage of time the child spends at each household.

The only problem is, there is no provisions for a perfectly able woman quitting their job to get more in child support.  Ask me how i know.

Just bend over and take it like a good dead beat father. You are the scum of the earth and deserve to be raped financially for the next 18 years.

You are not alone.

The CS tables take into account both parents incomes.  

 



Here is a calculator for Ohio.

Depends on state law/policy which I suspect varies widely.  Normally its just based on the non-custodial parents income.  At least Iowa is that way.

Consult your attorney.  But don't hold your breath.

it should be based purely on a percentage of the minimum amount to required raise the child and not a dime more.

income should have nothing to do with it.

I'm pretty sure it varies state-to-state. In Louisiana they told me they would not factor her new husband's income in until my child made 5 years old.

State to state is different. Here in NC, its based on BOTH parents' incomes. There is a set formula. Here's a situation to think about...

My wife's ex was paying $500 a month for one child. He petitioned to have it reduced after five or so years due to less income on his end. The courts reduced it to $350. Five or so years later (four months ago), he got laid off and is collecting unemployment. He petitioned to have it reduced again. The courts reduced it to $50 a month. If he was not collecting unemployment, it would've remained unchanged.


I don't judge. As a dad (I'm one too), you have to do what you think is best for your child. I can understand not wanting to throw money at an ex-wife so she can get her hair and nails done. I can also understand how tough it is to make it as a single mom without child support. You have to live with the decisions you make based on how it will affect YOUR CHILD. I put my kids FIRST over everything. Just sayin...

18 years of grabbing your ankles and taking it goes by quick.

The same fucking month my company closed and sent me packing, the domestic rapers doubled my child support. I had all the seperation paperwork from my job and knew my last day but still it was fuck me.

In Kalifornia, Dads have to get a court to order a child support reduction.  Moms have a right to appear in court, and to oppose the motion if they desire.  They almost always so desire.  In fact, they usually petition the court for an increase in the support amount.  The amount of money a new boyfriend makes is not relevant.  They usually get the increase.  If the Mom is on welfare, the state will provide her a lawyer for her petition free of charge.

So going to court may not work out for you.  Beware, things may go from Bad to Worse....

Yeah, They used sand against you for the lube didn't they. I thought my $500 was alot.

Thanks for everyones replys.  Right now I am unsure as to whether I will petition the court for a review.   I have always felt that the lawyers always end up the better end of the deal but I know the x's income has increased substantially.

You should get hit with a higher support amount. Child support is based upon the total income of both parents combined. The non-custodial parent is usually responsible for 60% of the amount derived using the child support guideline formula.
