I am currently a stay-at-home mom caring for a young child (6 years old) with a broad spectrum of cognitive/academic and physical developmental delays. Before 2012 I helped her father do secretarial work for the family business (we're not married), but could not find anything afterwards that paid anything near $22/hr. A babysitter would take half that, so I stayed home with her. I am also filing a do-it-yourself petition for upward modification of support. My contribution is non-financial. I would like to go back to school for vocational training in 2014 when she is a little older and more mature and independent. Her after-school care alone will be expensive and almost warrants not working. Will I be imputed income as a stay-at-home mom, even though I care for her more than full time?
