With equal shared custody, is offset guaranteed where only difference in child support of two parents is paid by higher earner ?

Q: 50-50 shared custody, equal joint legal and physical custody for both parents. Father earns more than the mother. Can offset be applied for child support payments where one calculates what mother would pay to father, and then what father would pay to mother for child support, and only difference between the two is actually paid by father? What needs to be done for getting this offset?

How do they get employer info for Income withholding orders?

Q: My fiance was put on child support from his ex. He placed his current job down when he went to court and showed pay stubs. The case was adjourned and he received a temporary child support order. We just received the copy of the IWO form in the mail and it listed an old employer. Why would they list an old employer on the form. Where did they get this information from? Did they look at his social security security number? And if so why wouldn't they put the most recent employer down? Is this the employer his ex put down as the last known employment for him?

What happens if the court cannot find respondant for child support hearing?

Q: My ex did not show up to our first child support/paternity establishment hearing. We were both mailed "Notices to Appear". He told a mutual friend he didn't care. The judge said she is ordering him to be served and if he doesn't show up at the next court date then "next steps will be taken". The problem is, the address they have is not his. It's his best friend's mom's address. I'm not sure if the court has his current employer or not. I have zero contact with my ex. He's been evading any responsibilities for child support. What will happen if they can't serve him? If they do serve him then what will happen next if he doesn't show up?

Request order modification?

Q: Child support order was in force 3 years ago. Currently I pay 440 at month. 3 years ago I change job because money was not enough to survive and pay all this bills. I'm a taxi driver working with Uber and other car service company. The 1099 form is extremely high but there are deductions when I file my tax return.

Im afraid that If I request a modification I end up paying more. Please help. Please note that the 1099 forms include all Uber fees and other deductions of money That I dont see. Thanks.

How is income calculated if you are a stay at home dad to a toddler?

Q: My fiance works 12 hours a week at a temp job early morning. He then comes home and watches our 1 year old. He has a 4 year old with his ex and has not been giving her money since he barely has income at the moment. She took him to child support court and he told the magistrate that he worked 12 hours at a temp job and since it is a temp job they pay well but do not have full time hours. They pay 18 an hr which is hard to come by in his field. The usual would be about 14 for full time positions. He also told the magistrate that he stays home with our 1 year old since I work full time and make the majority of the money. She then told him that he is capable of working 35 hours a week and calculated a temporary order based at 35 when he works 12 hours. This would be literally his whole check per week. Plus how is he supposed to work if he stays home with our baby. The case was adjourned till April where they will then calculate health insurance and preschool tution. What can be done? This isn't fair if the little money he makes go all to his ex and then I need to pay all of our expenses. The magistrate is basing child support off of money that doesn't actually exist.
