I share 50/50 custody with the mother of my children and I need to continue to pay 600 dollars child support because she chooses not to work to collect child support from my self and another case she has with her other children. She stays home and receives 1200 just from child support instead of financially taking care of our children on her own. I feel I support them 100% on my time and on her time and I seen a judge regarding it and he says nothing because she argues she "cant find a job" which has been 4 years what can I do? Please help I just want it to be equal
You can ask that income be imputed to her at the wage she would be able to earn, possibly minimum wage. If she is receiving aid, they will not usually impute income, at least in the DCSS courts.
You should talk to an attorney about the particulars of your case.
As Debra stated, you can request a motion to impute income to the mother. Depending on the number of 'other children' she has and their ages, the judge may decide to impute income at minimum wage for part time (20 hours/wk), depending on what type of work she is capable of and what jobs are available in her area. If this is through DCSS, before doing so they may provide her with a grace period of 90 days to seek work which she must prove by showing she has applied for jobs. It's a good idea to contact a lawyer and see whether or how much this will effect your CS payment.
