Default Undue Hardship

Undue Hardship defined as ...

"In reference to child support, a situation in which the paying of the amount of child support specified by the Child Support Guidelines would cause serious difficulty and gross unfairness for either the payor or the recipient; a greater degree of hardship than simple "hardship" is required, it must also be "undue" or manifestly unfair before the court will deviate from the Guidelines. See also "Child Support" and "Child Support Guidelines."

My question is this.

Would "serious difficulty and gross unfairness for either the payor or the recipient" be construed to mean the inability of one spouse after having paid out monies not having the ability to maintain an environment suitable for the children? IE - Not enough money to rent/purchase a home/ pay the bills/ groceries / buy furniture ...

What are the guidelines to be considered as being under 'Undue Hardship' ...
