After several (failed) attempts to have child support lowered, my soon to be ex husband is pursuing spousal support. According to my calculations my income is approximately $1300 more than his monthly. He pays $600 monthly in child support currently as I have the children the majority of the time. I understand that they will give him 30% of the difference after child support. But is the $600 child support added or subtracted? Does that mean he gets 30% of $1900 since he pays child support or 30% of $700? Also, what is considered the "standard of living during the marriage" Up until literally days before the marriage ended, I actually made less than him.
