During the 6-year marriage, the husband worked a standard 40-hour week. Since the divorce, and largely due to the financial burdens placed upon him by his support payments, the child support payor elected to get a second job.
Without factoring in the second job, the children are well cared for at the standard of living that they enjoyed before the divorce.

The father (payor) has his two children 50% visitation, alternating weeks.

If the payor's second income is discovered by the mother (payee) I understand that she may, at her discretion, attempt to modify support so that it reflects income from both of the payor's jobs.

If the payor is being taken to court for such a modification and he quits his second job to reduce his financial profile, can the court force the payor to work two jobs in order to maintain that inflated level of income?

Alternately, can the court impute an income to the payor equivalent to what his income would be if he had both jobs?

My response:

Why did you purposefully delete the "State Name" question, and fail to answer that question?
