Summary as introduced:
Child support. Clarifies and expands (adding income from a second job or overtime) the components of income that may be considered in rebutting the presumptions established by the guideline; describes issues the court should consider in imputing income; expands the types of health care services that may be considered as "extraordinary medical and dental expenses;" and establishes thresholds for calculating the amount of child-care costs incurred due to employment that should be added to the basic support obligation. This bill reflects the recommendations of the Secretary of Health and Human Resources Child Support Guideline Review Panel. The provisions are not retroactive and do not constitute the basis for a material change in circumstances upon which a modification of child support may be based.
