I was reading under the new Tennessee Child Support guidelines that if either the mother or father willfully quit their job for a lower paying job for part-time hours that the court will consider what that parent is capable of making as to the income they are getting at the lower paying job.
That is the problem we are coming across. The mother of my fiance's daughter quit her job to lower her percent of support so he has to pay more. She has had jobs paying $11 to $12 an hour also. I read that the court has to calculate what she is capable of making instead of the lower paying job she is purposely working.
