The income of a spouse of a custodial parent, can be used in determing a portion of the child support. Because the spouse of a custodial parent is most likely contributing to the expense of the house, utilities and such, the non custodial parent may be intitled to a reduction in support.. this is usually a case that has to be heard by a judge. the income of a non custodial spouse can not be used as they are not contributing to the expenses of the home the children live in. If you think about it, this makes sense. a non custodial parent is paying their share based on the over all expense of the custodial parents home and income.. if the custodial parent is not paying for a portion of those expenses, then an non custodial parent should not have to pay them either.
