Addendum Ib Above-Threshold Offset Formula, with a 25% or More Threshold Expressed in Terms of Days

CS = (lesser time parent’s obligation) minus (greater time parent’s obligation) CS = (IncomeX * CNM * ((183 – (Ndays – 91)) * DM)) – (IncomeY * CNM * ((Ndays – 91) * DM))

Where: CNM = child number multiplier: 17% for 1 child; 25% for 2; 29% for 3; 31% for 4; 34% for 5 or more DM = daily reduction multiplier: .00546 [1 divided by 183 = .0054644]

IncomeX = gross monthly income of lesser time parent (X) IncomeY = gross monthly income of greater time parent (Y) Ndays = number of days that child lives with lesser time parent (X)

Negative results indicate that the greater time parent (Y) is the child support payor.

# Some examples:

a.

Lesser time parent earns \$40,000/year (\$3,333 monthly), and cares for child 112 nights. Greater time parent earns \$25,000/year (\$2,083 monthly). One child.

Formula: (3333 * .17 * ((183 – (112 – 91)) *.00546)) – (2083 * .17 * ((112 – 91) * .00546)) = \$501 – \$41 = \$460/month CS Lesser time parent is the payor.

b.

Lesser time parent earns \$25,000/year (\$2,083 monthly), and cares for child 112 nights. Greater time parent earns\$40,000/year (\$3,333 monthly). One child.

Formula: (2083 * .17 * ((183 – (112 – 91)) * .00546)) – (3333 * .17 * ((112 – 91) * .00546)) = \$313 – \$65 = \$248/month CS Lesser time parent is the payor.

c.

Lesser time parent earns \$25,000/year (\$2,083 monthly), and cares for child 165 nights. Greater time parent earns \$40,000/year (\$3,333 monthly). One child.

Formula: (2083 * .17 * ((183 – (165 – 91)) * .00546)) – (3333 * .17 * ((165 – 91) * .00546)) = \$211 – \$229 = – \$18/month CS Greater time parent is the payor.

d.

Lesser time parent earns \$80,000/year (\$6,667monthly), and cares for the child 112 nights. Greater time parent earns \$20,000/year (\$1,667 monthly). One child.

Formula: (6667 * .17 * ((183 – (112 – 91)) * .00546)) – (1667 * .17 * ((112 – 91) * .00546)) = \$1002.50 – \$32.50 = \$970/month CS Lesser time parent is payor.
