Example 1: A mother receives child support of $175 a month for her child. The child moves across town and begins receiving TANF with her grandmother. The mother gives the grandmother $100 a month for her child and keeps
the other $75. Budget $100 as nonexempt unearned income against the case that contains the child.
Example 2: A father is in the service and is stationed overseas. His military pay includes a dependent allowance of $150 per month that is sent home to his wife. Budget the $150 received as nonexempt unearned income
