North Carolina Child Support Guidelines Changes – Income

There are several specific things which are now explicity excluded from “income“, they are:
1) Child support payments received on behalf of a child who is not a party to the instant action;
2) The employer’s share of social security and medicare payments;
3) Health, life or disability insurance premium payments which are paid directly to an insurance carrier and not withheld from wages; and

4) Retirement benefits which are paid directly to a third party and are not withheld from the payments to the individual.

Also, when a child receives social security payments because of a parent’s disability, that amount of money is added to that parent’s income for purposes of calculating child support. That amount is then deducted from that parent’s portion of the child support obligation.
