Q. My ex-husband pays support through the courts for our two minor children. He became unemployed and now his unemployment benefits are ending. What does this mean for our ability to receive support?
A. Generally speaking, child support calculations in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey will start with a determination of the incomes or earning potentials of the parents. When your ex-husband was employed, assuming he was employed to his full earning potential, they most likely put him at his actual earnings.
