The Supreme Court in its July 27, 2006 omnibus rule amendment order adopted an updated Rules Appendix IX-F ("Schedule of Child Support Awards"), to be effective September 1, 2006. That updated Appendix IX-F was the result of the federally required Quadrennial Review of the Child Support Guidelines to reflect current economic data and was based on recommendations by the Supreme Court Family Practice Committee. The Court's rule amendment order did not, however, include a similarly updated Rules Appendix IX-G ("Schedule of Child Support Awards as a Percentage of Combined Net Income"). Thus, as of September 1, 2006, Appendix IX-G will be out of date and should not be utilized. The Supreme Court Family Practice Committee is reviewing Appendix IX-G and will be making appropriate recommendations to the Supreme Court for amendment thereto on an expedited basis.
