I will soon have a hearing for modification of child support. Last year I know new guidelines were adopted but the attorney general still used the 2015 guidelines. Can they just choose which guidelines to use or do they have to use the 2018 guidelines this time around? If they do have to use the 2018 guidelines but use the 2015 guidelines instead, is there anything I can do or say for them to use the 2018 guidelines?
The 2018 guidelines should be used but I’ve not personally noticed any significant differences in child support calculations using the most recent calculator vs the previous iteration. You can test both so that you’re prepared to explain if support is calculated incorrectly.
