The income of your ex-spouse's partner is irrelevant to child support; only your ex-spouses income counts.
No, only the biological parents income will be used to figure the child support amount. No step-parent income is used in the state of Maryland.
Yes. They are still the child's parent and responsible for supporting their child.
No, a spouses income is never taken into consideration when child support is being figured. Only the income of the 2 biological parents will be used.
Only through a Rebuttable Presumption argument. see link
Maryland does not have that specific provision, but all child support is rebuttable.
No Almost never. In a couple of states, there are some minor loopholes that revolve around cases where there is an open arreage or a recent reduction of support because of a new lower paying job, but in the US at least, a second spouses income does not generally affect your support amount.
No, He has a moral obligation to support his child financially and emotionally. Unless his income has decreased support should remain the same.
Not automatically, but can be raised as a rebuttable presumption. see links
Typically courts will not penalize a child by reducing support payments because a parent has had another child because this is not seen as being in the best interest of the child.
No, only the income of the biological parents are used to figure how much child support will be paid. Medical support does not use a spouses income either.
nope, only takes the mother and fathers income into account. Spouses of the parents are not included
Just because your ex remarries, you cannot lower your child support. Further, If you remarry a millionaire, your ex wife can stake no claim on that income and try to raise your support.
what if the noncustodial parent still reside with the custodial parent, is noncustodial parent still obligated to pay childsupport
Remarriage should not affect the child support order.
Not under the Maryland Guidelines, but an argument can be made using a Rebuttable Presumption. However, that's a two way street and can be used to lower the payments. see link
No, in the U.S. the children of a first marriage take precedence in regards to child support. The law assumes that a person remarries and the person who becomes the new spouse accept the obligation for supporting all previously born children. Although this often institutes a hardship on second families, it is still the choice that a new spouse makes when marrying someone who has such obligations as child support and/or spousal maintenance (alimony).
If the father of your child has another child by someone will the courts or child support enforcement reduce my support of my child. ? Are there any special circumstances if the father of my child never married me or this other person.? Can I still persue increases of child support even though the man has another child? Sincerely.

Not in the slightest.
Depends on where you are, but for the most part yes.
Yes. When your ex remarries, the child remains your child. It does not matter if she has another one. You still have to pay for the child you fathered.
It depends on the state. Most states do not take a new spouse's income into account when determining the child support amount, so even if the custodial parent remarries, child support amounts are likely to stay the same.
