What is the name of your state? VA
I've been looking at various VA child support calculators to see approximately what I should be receiving, rather than what I actually get. We are in the process of getting custody and child support established. It has been based on a verbal agreement up until now.
My question is this. As the unofficial CP I have always carried medical insurance on our daughter. My ex, the unofficial NCP, never carried her until he had to carry his wife and their child on his insurance. Now that he has a family policy anyway, he has decided to carry her on his policy as a secondary person. How does that factor into child support calculations.
From what I gather from other sites, these calculators ask how much each of us pays in insurance. Does it matter that he would pay the same whether or not she were on his policy? Does he get to claim the full amount in his child support calculations?
Also, another question. Does the number of children that he has in his house (new wife's kids or kids from their marriage) factor into the calculations?
