Does The Income Of Both Parents Get Included When Calculating Child Support?

For the purposes of basic child support, no, it’s only the parent who is paying.  However, for child support add ons such as medical expenses and day care, both parties incomes are considered and the contribution is pro rata based upon your respective incomes.
