Do I have to include my husbands income into the child support modification paperwork?

Asked about 1 year ago - Phoenix, AZ

I'm a mother of two children, I have a 4 year old boy and 2 year old girl. My husband is not the biological father of my son. I recently received the modification paperwork from child support and they are asking me for my monthly income. Now, I'm going to be a full time student, I'm not employed, and I obviously don't pay any bills. So, my question is, do I put my husbands income as my income since we're married or do I just keep the info about myself and my son??
