Why does my ex-wife have a negative number on our child support guidelines worksheet?

Asked 12 months ago - Orlando, FL

Under the Federal Income Tax she has a -$602.97 making her income go up by that amount. The form was done by the court and I do not understand why they added $600 a month to her income. Is it because she gets to claim the kids for taxes?
