She will be assumed to make the same amount or have the ability to make the same amount as in the current order until there is a modification. If you suspect she is making more consult with an attorney.

There's a presumption in the child support regulations that a person earns or can earn about $25,000 a year. This prevents people from pointing to their empty bank accounts as proof of low income.
