Determining Child Support if a Parent Works Off the Books
It is not uncommon for us to confront a case where one of the parents is working off the books. Those cases can be difficult for us, in the sense that we have to establish what that income is for the court to assess Child Support. If the parent has a standard of living that is not explained by the income that they do report, we will attempt to gather enough information to establish that standard of living. This will set an income base line for the payment of Child Support. These are difficult cases, and it is best that you speak with your Attorney about all the different ways that your Attorney might be able to establish an income base. This way, full and fair Child Support can be paid, based upon the actual income earned by that parent.
