In a divorce settlement on what income do they base their alimony/child support deductions?

Q: In a divorce settlement on what income do they base their alimony/child support deductions? Based on what you made last year on your taxes or what you are currently making?

A: David’s Answer: The general rule is that they base the calculation on income reported on “last filed tax return.” However, if enough months have gone by the current year that a responsible projection of your income can be done, the Court has discretion to use current-year figures.
