When my ex found out I filed child support he cut his hours at work to part time. After the order and amount is established he plans on going back to full time. Is this aloud? Doesn’t he have to work full time since he always was?
They cannot force him to work, but there are ways to protect against this kind of behavior. His income can be imputed based on an average of his previous annual income or based on minimum wage for a full time employee. If the issue is litigated in court, then he could be ordered to submit to a vocational evaluation to determine is earning potential.
You can have the court impugne full time wages based on what he made prior to being informed that CS was being put together. Likewise if going to part time was voluntary, he can be determined to be voluntarily under employed.
