My question involves child support in the State of: Florida.
My ex-husband and I are in the middle of a custody modification case. Recently, i was found out that the original calculations for the child support were done wrong....according to him and his attorney. When we divorced, he did not have an attorney (i did), and when my attorney sent the financial papers to him, he put down his gross income instead of his net. He is self employed and did not take any deductions. Also, since I am a stay at home mom (still am) I put down my income was zero..which it is..his attorney is saying I should have been assigned a wage and therefore the calculations are wrong, by a lot. This was not my fault and my attorney should have known this. Also, child support did not say anything about the paperwork, so why would they change the order now three years later. He is saying he will get a credit since it was factored on gross income, not net income. I recieve 900 a month now...but when they factor the net income and assign me a wage, it goes down to about 400 a month. Is this true? And why will I pay for someone elses mistake? I don't understand why they would give me a wage when I don't work. I have been a stay at home mom since my daughter was born, and stayed that way since I divorced him. I plan to go back to work in two years when our daughter is 6 and in kindergarden. When we were married, that was our aggreement.
