A: In cases of child support, a parent's income, including disability benefits, is typically considered when determining their child support obligations. If your husband is receiving disability benefits, these can be factored into the calculation for child support.

However, the specific laws and regulations governing child support vary by state. It's important to consult with an attorney who is knowledgeable about family law in your state to understand how these rules apply to your situation.

They can guide you through the process of filing for child support and explain how your husband's disability income may impact the amount of support awarded. Remember, every situation is unique, and legal advice tailored to your circumstances is essential.
