My ex and I have a 9 month old baby. We have 50/50 custody child support order, with joint legal and she has physical custody with split child care cost. We settled out of court and did not once see a judge. She is in college and will be graduating in May. Baby has been going to the college's cc center. During her winter break, I worked, she cared for him. She complained about not being 50/50. On one of my days, she was too busy for care for him and refused her half of sitter. Once she graduates I want to go to court and request to use potential income. Mom lives with her parents and has no need to work, I support myself, baby and pay child support. I am scraping by. How much time will they give her to find work, how will her plans for grad school affect this?
