No, not necessary. The way the child support guideline works is once the court determines what is your net income and your spouse’s net income, and it gets the combined amount, it goes through a chart that determines if you’re making $100,000 combined income and you have one child. It takes it to where the point meets and that will be the entire child support obligation. The court will be splitting that depending on how much money you’re making. If you’re making 60 percent more than the other parent, then you will be obligated to pay 60 percent of that amount; But if you’re paying for child care costs or if you’re paying for clothing that is not calculated in the child support guideline, that is essentially considered a gift and would not be considered as part of child support.
