Child support question/ex wife supported by rich dad

Q: I've been divorced for 5 years in NY. I pay child support for 2 children. I'm a part-time school teacher earning a modest income. My fincee and I bought a small house with a small down payment. My ex-wife IRS 1040 shows $8,000 in earnings! She lives in a house that her father bought. Her father sends her money for all her payments; she only works part-time as a receptionist in a real estate office. She is demanding that I send her my IRS statement from last year, to get more money from me, of course.
I would like to know if she should be reporting all the gifts her father provides (housing and expenses all paid) and how her income should or should not affect my child support amount. Also, How will a judge in a court of law view this case?
Thank you very much

My son wants to speak to the family court, child protective services but can't because he is in a teen treatment center.

Q: My son, a 16 year old, 11 month old has been held by a teen treatment center for over 45 days. He wants to leave, live with me and go to a public high school. He basically wants to move on with his Iife. I recently filed for a modification in custody. I believe his Mother wants to keep him there so she can continue to receive $1500 a month in child support as well as 42% of additional child expenses, which she always inflates. The mother and the school district have enrolled him in a day center run by the teen center which would mean greater profits for them. The school district would send tens of thousands of dollars to the outplacement program so my son could be bused two hours during the day in New York Traffic. Basically, my son is a pawn in a sick game. The custody proceeding has been adjourned six weeks from now. My son say's he has the right to be heard in a court of law. I don't know what to say to him and I'm only given 10 minutes a day to speak to him. I'm hopeful a law guardian could be appointed soon, but don't even know if he/she will get access to him. He's 90 minutes away in another state.
