I went to court last month and just received court orders. There is an error on my stated income. I make 16.09/hr but the documents calculate my hourly pay at 16.95.
My other concern is I work 40 hrs a week and occasionally work an extra Saturday if it is available. This overtime is not available every week or guaranteed. The court order says I work 40-50 hrs a week, but calculated my average income on 50 hrs for a weekly gross income of $932.
My 2012 W2 shows my gross pay is 35,648.16. I do work some overtime, but not enough to have an "average" weekly income of $932.
Can this be corrected to reflect my actual income? I can submit all my paystubs and W2's to show what I make hourly and how many hours I am actually averaging.

All depending on the time frame, you may be able to file a Motion to Correct Error. I would suggest you run a new child support worksheet (online) and see what the difference per week would be. It may not be enough to make much of a difference in the final weekly child support amount. Contact an attorney to see if you can get this taken care of.

Sonya's suggestions are correct, but you also need to determine if you presented sufficient evidence at the hearing. If you did not present your pay -stubs and W2 at the hearing, how was the Court to determine your correct income?
