CHANGE TO THE CHILD SUPPORT GUIDELINES
May 8, 2013 § 2 Comments
MCA 43-19-101(e) has been amended, effective July 1, 2013, to provide that:
“In cases in which the adjusted gross income as defined in this section is more than One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000) or less than Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000), the court shall make a written finding in the record as to whether or not the application of the guidelines established in this section is reasonable.”
Right now the figures are $50,000 and $5,000.
This change is a recognition of changing economic realties. The original figures were established by the legislature in 1989 — 24 years ago.
