Short story is that ex had a baby, and apparently had some sort of complications with the delivery, so she had a c-section and went on "disability". She now claims that she is a stay at home mom for good. She had a 60K job in info technology prior to having a baby (summer 2004).
I have two kids, ages 5 & 6 who will be going into school, so daycare is no longer needed, yet she refuses to sign a stipulation that emliminates $1,300 in monthly daycare support that is withheld from my pay. She is claiming that she's going to ask for more basic child support (I pay $1,200 month in that as well), now that she's at home at doesn't have income.
We were in court last week over school district choice, we live 1 miles apart, but in 2 different counties and therefore 2 different schools. She won school choice because she declared that she's at home for good now, and the she can put the kids on the bus and be there when the bus lets them off. If they went to my school, I would have to arrange for 2 hours of care from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 when I got home from work. we have joint legal and 50/50 physical.
Question is, will they (court) impute her income at $60K since she chose to have a baby, which led to her "disability", and what will the court do about day care costs. There aren't any since she's at home and they ruled last week that on my days I take them to her house and she's puts on the bus and they get off the bus at her house at 3:30 and I pick them up at her house on my days as well. The master ruled that the kids are better off with a parent versus some form of childcare.
