You may be referring to a child support worksheet or the Affidavit of Financial Information, both of which are used when establishing or modifying child support. The child support worksheet lists each parent's gross monthly income. If you are working 8 hours a week at $10 an hour, your gross monthly income should be listed as $346.00. The Affidavit of Financial Information requires you to break down your gross monthly income into how frequently you are paid and what you earn on an hourly basis.
Page 3, paragraph 6(D) of the Affidavit of Financial Information also has a space for you to fill in the cost of child care. I recommend that you obtain proof of payment for any child care.
