Question: Where recipient's income is below 10% of combined income, should the program give the reduction for substantial custody?

Answer: Prior to August of 2013, Rule 1910.16.4(c) (3) provided that the reduction for substantial and shared custody would not apply if the recipient's income is below 10% of combined income.

However the guideline changes introduced in August of 2013 eliminated that provision.

The reduction for substantial and shared custody now applies as long as the number of overnights reaches the threshold, regardless of the parties' relative incomes.
