Here is another stupid question. Is child support based only on the previous year's income, or on an average of the last three years?

If it is based on only his income, and only for last year, he won't be required to pay anything and I will have to wait at least until next summer for that to change (assuming he starts working before next summer). If it is based on the average of three years, he will have to pay child support - so it makes a big difference in this circumstance.

If it is three years, do we average three years every time, or is it just for the initial calculation of child support, and thereafter you base off of only the previous year's income?

I'm confused about this part, obviously.
