Thomson v. Holling (North Carolina 2018)

COA17-734 (N.C. Ct. App. 2018)
February 2018

Specific evidence must support the income determination for a self-employed parent. The mother appealed the lower court’s income calculation for the father, who was self-employed. The lower court based its determination on father's child support worksheet and testimony. The Appellate Court found that the evidence didn’t support the monthly income attributed to the father. He didn’t provide business receipts or an expense statement. He testified about several accounts that he used to pay expenses, but the decision didn’t address funds available in these accounts.
