Note 1: When there are more than six children who are the subject of a single order, determine the appropriate amount of support for six children under the guidelines. Using the same income figures, subtract the support amount for five children from the amount for six children. Multiply the difference by the number of children in excess of six and add the resulting amount to the guideline amount for six children. See, Rule 1910.16-4 (b).

Note 2: To arrive at net income, deduct only (A) federal, state, and local income taxes; (B) F.I.C.A. payments and non-voluntary retirement payments; (C) union dues; and (D) alimony paid to the other party. For spousal support or alimony pendente lite, deduct all child support obligations, spousal support, alimony pendente lite, and alimony paid to former spouses. See, Rule 1910.16-2 (c).

Note 3: When the children spend 40% or more of their time during the year with the obligor, a rebuttable presumption arises that the obligor is entitled to a reduction in the basic support obligation to reflect this time. See, Rule 1910.16-4 (c). When there is divided or split physical custody, one or more of the children residing with each party, the parties' respective child support obligations are offset and the net difference awarded to the obligee as child support. See, Rule 1910.16-4 (d).
