Income for Calculating Child Support

In the case of Champlain v. Champlin, A12-0501, Husband worked as a line cook.  However, Husband apparently was not able to meet all of his living expenses on line cook wages.  As a result, Husband’s parents had been giving him pre-paid credit cards, and making direct payments to his creditors to cover the difference.  When determining what Husband’s income was for child support purposes, the court included both his wages AND the contributions made by his parents.  The court refused to treat the contributions from Husband’s parents as gifts because the payments were from a regular and dependable source.
