T.B. VS. DAVID RICHARD HAND
 A-5430-11T4/ A-5431-11T4 (CONSOLIDATED)

We affirm counsel fees and the refusal to consider an
expert opinion on imputed income because it is a net
opinion. We reverse the aspect of the motion judge's
decision involving the calculation of child support for
multiple families because the judge ignored the obligor's
multiple obligations. We suggest one way to fairly
calculate child support that is consistent with the
purposes of the Child Support Guidelines not to penalize
later-born children of a different mother. We suggest
averaging the worksheet calculations, first with one family
representing the "prior order," and then with the other
family representing the "prior order." Using this method
the obligor and all of the children are treated equitably. 12/18/13
