Substantial competent evidence did not support determination that father’s monthly income was $3,000, for purposes of calculating child support obligation for father who lived and worked in China and earned income in Chinese Yuan equaling approximately $923 per month; trial court stated that it had used a “pro rata ratio‑type” determination that father’s equivalent income would be $3,000, based on information that father’s rent in China was only $46 and his food costs only $76, but failed to support determination with evidence or imputation of income.
