Question regardign imputting income for custodial parent
I have a question for those of you that live in states that impute income for the custodial parent.
Bm has quit yet another job because apparently she thinks everyone should pay her way. (at the last review she was working and earning min wage so current CS is figured as though she's working)Here in NM, from the CS guidelines that I've read, it says that once child turns 6 years old they impute min wage for Custodial parent regardless if they are working or not. We anticpate going back to court in the next few months and Bm seems to think they are going to raise CS because she is choosing not to work. We know this because she called Dh and started asking for money and when he said no she started threatening to file a motion to go back to court because she "knows" she's "entitled" to more because she's not working. Wellll, my question is, do you know or has it ever happened to you that the judge overruled the rule that says they impute? Everything says the only reason they won't impute min wage is if the child is disabled, which Ss is not. I'm just curious if for some reason the judge wouldn't impute even though everything says both parents are financially responsible for their kid until 18 or 19/graduation.
also, i know every state is different I'm just trying to be prepaired for anything.
