U.C.A. 78B-12-203(2) states: "Income from earned income sources is limited to the equivalent of one full-time 40-hour job." Refer to U.C.A. 78B-12-203 for additional information about determining gross income. All income must be verified.

U.C.A. 78B-12-210(6) and (7) state: "(6) (a) Natural or adoptive children of either parent who live in the home of that parent and are not children in common to both parties may at the option of either party be taken into account under the guidelines in setting or modifying a child support award, as provided in Subsection (7). Credit may not be given if: (i) by giving credit to the obligor, children for whom a prior support order exists would have their child support reduced; or (ii) by giving credit to the obligee for a present family, the obligation of the obligor would increase. (b) Additional worksheets shall be prepared that compute the obligations of the respective parents for the additional children. The obligations shall then be subtracted from the appropriate parent's income before determining the award in the instant case. "(7) In a proceeding to adjust or modify an existing award, consideration of natural or adoptive children born after entry of the order and who are not in common to both parties may be applied to mitigate an increase in the award but may not be applied: (a) for the benefit of the obligee if the credit would increase the support obligation of the obligor from the most recent order; or (b) for the benefit of the obligor if the amount of support received by the obligee would be decreased from the most recent order."
