ADDENDUM B COM BINED PARENTAL INCOM E OVER $80,000.00 W here combined parental income exceeds $80,000.00, the Court shall determine the amount of child support for the amount of the combined parental income in excess of such dollar amount through consideration of the factors set forth in Addendum D and or the support percentage set forth in Addendum A. ADDENDUM C SELF-SUPPORT RESERVE W here the annual amount of the basic child support obligation would reduce the non -custodial parent's income below the poverty income guidelines amount for a single person as reported by the federal Department of Health and Human Services , the basic child support obligation shall be twenty-five dollars per month unless the interests of justice dictate otherwise. W here the annual amount of the basic child support obligation would reduce the non-custodial parent's income below the self-support reserve but not below, the proverty income guidelines amount of a single person as reported by the federal Department of Health and Human Services, the basic child support obligation shall be fifty dollars per month or the difference between the non-custodial parent's income and the self-support reserve, whichever is greater. ADDENDUM D VARIANCE FROM THE PERCENTAGES The Court has the discretion to vary from the percentages if it finds that the non-custodial parent's pro-rata share of the basic child support obligation is unjust or inappropriate. This finding shall be based upon consideration of the following factors: I . The financial resources of the custodial and non-custodial parent, and those of the child. 2.The physical and emotional health of the child and his/her special needs and aptitudes. 3.The standard of living the child would have enjoyed had the marriage or household not been dissolved. 4.The tax consequences to the parties. 5.The non-monetary contributions that the parents will make toward the care and well-being of the child. 6.The educational needs of either parent. 7.A determination that the gross income of one parent is substantially less than the other parent's gross income. 8.The needs of the children of the non-custodial parent for whom the non-custodial parent is providing support who are not subject to the instant action and whose support has not been deducted from income, and the financial resources of any person obligated to support such children, provided, however, that this factor may apply only if the resources available to support such children are less than the resources available to support the children who are subject to the instant action. 9. Provided that the child is not on public assistance (I) extraordinary expenses incurred by the non-custodial parent in exercising visitation, or (ii) expenses incurred by the non-custodial parent in extended visitation provided that the custodial parent's expenses are substantially reduced as a result thereof. 10.
