Child support guidelines are mandated by the State. The guidelines can get tricky when at least one spouse is an independent business owner who can control his/her wages. In this situation, it typically helps to bring in a financial or tax expert who can help determine the true potential income of the independent business owner or owners from that divorcing couple.  Non-working spouse might have income imputed to them, if the judge believes that they are deliberately not working to avoid child support, or if a spouse is believed to be only temporarily employed.


Like so many divorce questions, the unique details of your case can have a great influence on the answers.  You owe it to protect yourself, and your financial security, to consult with a child support attorney to get straight answers about your divorce case.
