INSTRUCTIONS FOR CHILDREN IN THE FATHER'S HOME WORKSHEET

 

Use this worksheet to determine the father's obligation for natural or adopted children who live in his home and who are not children of the mother listed on the Sole, Split, or Joint Custody Worksheets (primary worksheets). The father may use this worksheet in modifying an existing child support award, or setting a paternity award, or other appropriate circumstances where the father has child support obligations for other children.

 

Line 1. Enter the number of natural or adopted children of the father and the other parent named on this worksheet. The other parent may be a current spouse, partner, or an ex-wife of the father listed on the primary worksheet.If the father has children in his home by more than one mother, complete a separate worksheet for the children of each other parent.

 

Line 2a. Enter the father's and other parent's gross monthly income. Definition of gross monthly income ‑ prospective income from any source, salaries, wages, commissions, royalties, bonuses, rents, gifts, prizes, dividends, severance pay, pensions, interest, trust income, alimony from previous marriages, annuities, capital gains, social security benefits, workers' compensation benefits, unemployment compensation, disability insurance benefits and payments for "non‑means‑tested" government programs. Income from earned sources is limited to the equivalent of one full time job. For self‑employed parents, see UCA 78‑45‑7.5(4)(a) and (b).

 

The guidelines do not provide for imputing income to the other parent.Therefore, use the other parentís actual earnings.

 

The father may be the custodial parent of the children in his home from a previous marriage.If the divorce decree from his previous marriage was entered prior to July 1, 1989, it is unlikely that a worksheet exists showing the proportion each parent should provide for the support of the children.Therefore, in these situations, use only the fatherís income to take to the Table.Assign the father 100% of the Table amount in Line 5.

 

Excluded from gross income are: cash assistance provided under Title 35A, Chapter 3, Part 3, Family Employment Program, benefits from: the housing subsidy program, the Job Training Partnership Act, S.S.I., S.S.D.I.,Medicaid, Food Stamps, General Assistance, and other "means‑tested" benefits received by a parent; earnings or benefits of a child who is subject to this award.

 

All income must be verified. Verification includes: year to date pay stubs, employer statements or records, the last year's tax return and documentation of non‑earned income appropriate to the source.

 

Line 2b. In the FATHER'S column, enter the monthly alimony amount he is paying to a parent other than the one listed on this worksheet or the primary worksheet. In the other parent's column enter the monthly alimony that mother is paying to someone other than the father listed on this worksheet.

 

Line 2c. In the FATHER'S column, enter the court ordered child support he is ordered to pay for children other than the children listed on the primary worksheet. In the other parent's column list the amount that mother is ordered to pay for children other than those listed on this worksheet.

 

Line 7. In the combined column, enter the children's portion of insurance premium that is actually paid. To determine the children's portion divide the total premium by the number of persons covered by the policy and then multiply that number by the number of children listed on this worksheet that are covered by policy.

 

Line 8. Enter the amount of work‑related, reasonable, child care expenses for up to a full‑time work week or training schedule.

 

Line 10. The guideline evaluation committee determined that the non-routine uninsured medical expenses should be evenly split between the father and the other parent, unless a judge or presiding administrative authority determines otherwise.

 

Line 12. Enter the amount on this line on Line 2d of the Sole Custody, Line 3d of the Split Custody or Line 4d of the Joint Custody Worksheets.†††††
