Application of the Guidelines, particularly in low income cases, leaves a party without the ability to self support.

Application of the guidelines would result in a gross disparity in the standard of living between the two households such that one household is left with an unreasonably low percentage of the combined available income. A parent has extraordinary medical expenses. A parent has extraordinary travel or other expenses related to parenting. Application of the guidelines may adversely impact re-unification of a parent and child where the child has been temporarily removed from the household based upon allegation of neglect. Absent deviation, application of the guidelines would lead to an order that is unjust, inappropriate or not in the best interests of the child, considering the Principles of the Guidelines.

The Guidelines are not applicable in this case because: The combined gross income of the parties exceeds $250,000. Other (specify):
