Is a 100% disabled vet 'low income'


If my only income is VA disability (3100) a month, am I considered low income when it comes to child support?

Jim's Reply:

I'm not familiar with the term "low income" being used when determining child support obligations, there are just incomes-numbers to be calculated whether high or low. The family court usually orders each party to complete a financial statement that lists property, total income and debts and then makes a determination about who owes what to who...the obligations. Your yearly income of 37,200 is actually comparatively high when compared to the 2018 federal poverty level income for one person that's set at $12,140. The court won't care where the income is from when making child support obligations, income is income and the welfare of any children is job #1.
