You need income information about yourself and the other parent. If either of you have filed a Financial Declaration, use that. Or look to any recent paystubs or tax papers. If paychecks vary, you can add up the past six months or a year and calculate the average monthly amount. If you do not know the other parent’s income, you can guess.
If you have regular monthly expenses for the children’s health insurance premiums, day care, education, or long-distance travel expenses, have those numbers handy.
If you want to fill out your Financial Declaration, we will ask how much you spend each month on housing, utilities, food, health care, transportation, children’s expenses, and other household and personal expenses. We will also ask about monthly debt payments. Have bills or statements handy for reference.
