I have shared custody with ex and we have two children together. The ex has no job, but has moved into an above average townhouse complex. I'm guessing her monthly living expenses (i.e. rent, utilities, car, insurances, etc.) are no less than $5000 a month. I pay about a third of that in support. She is being financially supported by her "well off" elderly father who is covering these expenses in exchange for caring for her elderly mother while he is on extensive travel overseas, which is only about 2 months out of the year. This is not a loving gesture. Ex has her own motivations for doing it, but i won't get into that here. Anyway, is the father's support considered income?
