What is “Actual Income”?

Obviously, there’s… everyone wants to know what “actual income” is and how to determine it. And obviously, as you stated, it’s a good point, are you self-employed? Are you a W2 employee? And why does it really matter? Because the numbers are based on a calculation. So we need to determine what each party’s income is. And from there we figure out the needs of, how it applies for the child. So that includes, it’s not just the money that’s being paid. It’s not given to the other parent for their luxuries. You have to consider the child needs. A house over his or her head, food, clothing. So it’s to support the child. And essentially it is the right of the child, not just the right of the other parents. So when we focus on the numbers, it really isn’t a “I’m paying the other parent. It’s I’m paying to help support the child.”
