    I have a 7 year old. Child support is court ordered but with an interstate case and payments are not wage garnishments. Still non-custodial parent pays consistently. In the summers, when our child goes to with the other parent, pays are not made.

    Will the payments for 12 months be averaged or are they unusable for income?

    If the payments cannot be used for income, can they count toward MRF?


    Consistency is key. If there are gaps it will likely be averaged. You can still use it as income though it just will be a lower amount each month.

    And any money you have or receive legitimately is absolutely counted as mrf.


    Hello LilEngine7,

    As long as the child support payments are court ordered and will continue for at least five more years, they can be counted as income. The interstate issue is not a factor. Please make sure to provide a copy of the child support order showing that the summer visitation and suspension of payments are part of the order. With that we can include the child support, and the payments will be averaged our over 12 months.

    The suspension is not part of the order. How will that affect the calculations?
