Dadfirst, I don't understand your example at all. If you are at 50/50 with the kids, why on earth would you not be getting the offset? and if not worried about the offset, why quibble over spousal being decided by net or gross?

The CS is pretty firm according to Federal Tables. The SS is not, and according to my lawyer, SS would be determined AFTER CS payments are factored in. At 50/50 the CS should be in the 700+ range with the offset (this is close to our numbers) and SS should then bring the lower income towards 45% area, which might mean only about another $150 per month. There are a lot of variables but this is a ballpark to start off with.

Whether negotiated or mediated or determined by a judge, the scenario you give just wouldn't be likely to happen.

So if you are creating a special situation, there is no precedent to base advice on. We can't predict what it "should be" if the starting place isn't including the offset amount.
