proof of relationship status

is the relationship status of the payor of any importance when calculating child support? If they are living together, would their combined income be considered as household income or is it just the payor himself?

Answer

No. Child support is based on the parent's income. Income is not combined. It is based on their income alone and the Child Support Guidelines. Here is a link to an article about it. https://www.galbraithfamilylaw.com/17-facts-about-child-support-you-need-to-know/
