I'd be delighted to. So are you guys sure she can only take from my NET income and not my GROSS? Because child enforcement takes my current support order based upon my gross income and not net from my job...

Hi Matt,

You do realize these topics are indexed in search engines right??

You are discussing how to not pay possible extra child support by not showing income if the ex comes after you for more money and also how the IRS wouldn't know about extra income reporting etc.

Unfortunately resolving custody and health of a child is a complex issue viewed at multiple angles by parties with sometimes having varying filters they look through and interests. Both might say they have the child's best interest at heart but disagree on how they get there or why.

The fact that their is still animosity shows unfinished emotional business that needs to be closed out. I can understand if an ex-spouse would keep taking and taking child support and then spending it on themselves etc.

I have heard before where that is a common compliant that the father doesn't mind paying more if they knew it benefited the child and not the ex-spouse abusing the funds. Couldn't a trust be set up or a direct system where the funds are documented and used for the child by the court?? I am not even close to an expert on this but it seems your attorney could help you out with this. It's sad many times because the child is in the middle at both parties expense and is the one taking the toll and paying the ultimate price.

No legal advice
