How do I calculate child support if the other parent’s income is unknown?

That’s a good question. When the other parent’s income is unknown the court may impute income to them based upon the median income. If the person is younger and has not had a lot of working experience, they may impute them at minimum wage at 40 hours. Or if they’re working in a specific career, they can go and determine what the average income in that career is and compute income that way.
