Yes, if you were married. The laws are very against men. If you were married, all the children were born when you were marrried, and she cheated you are still condisered there father and have to pay. I know it makes no sense. The laws date back to the 1800's and NEED TO BE CHANGED.

In many states (and it may be in all states for all I know) a married man can challenge paternity as long as he does it *during the divorce process*. If he doesn't do it then, once the divorce is granted, he's out of luck. Even if the children are later proven (via a DNA test) not to be his, he still has to support them. Laws vary from state to state, so speak with an attorney.

The laws regarding this type of situation are slowly changing, because there are entirely too many men being forced to pay child support for children they were 'tricked' into believe were theirs, while the actual biological fathers never have to pay a dime.

Can there be an upward modification of child support when non custodial parent loses visitation?

Visitation and child support are separate issues. One does not depend on the other. Parents must provide support for their children. There are many variations in visitation rights and those do not generally affect child support obligations.Visitation and child support are separate issues. One does not depend on the other.

What are the rights of fathers who now take care of their children but still pay child support?

If you and your ex both have the children it is not unusual for the father to pay child support. Don't forget, the ex has to go to work to provide for those children in most cases and that is a large cost. There is day care for the children, buying clothes, schooling, food, etc. It's tough. However, if you are the one looking after your children 100% you need to find legal council because you shouldn't be paying your ex any money! All child support goes to the child(ren.) Marcy


Should a child support order change if your children's father is living with his ex wife and their 3 children and sharing household expenses while she is collecting child support for their kids?

No. Where he lives or who with is not relevant and he paid child support for their kids before he moved in surely.Another PerspectiveYou can inquire at the family court with jurisdiction over your case. Ask to speak with an advocate. You seem to think that his keeping the child support order for those children in effect, while he resides with them, may affect your child support from him. You should be able to get an answer to that question from the court.His child support obligation for his first family may well affect the amount you receive for your child.

That is not likely since child support is based on the parents' income only. Your child support amount was calculated according to the Georgia child support guidelines. You can check those guidelines to see if a remarriage will result in any changes.That is not likely since child support is based on the parents' income only.

Does child support payments reduc once you become married?

No. Remarriage by a non custodial or custodial parent does not impact child support matters. In the US, the laws always uphold the rights of the first born child/children as opposed to those of a second marriage or relationship. The status of a non custodial parent's financial obligations to minor children does not change when he or she remarries.

Do you have to pay support if child does not live at home?

Depends on the age of the child, if the child is in school and the reason the child is living with someone other than a parent. Children that are temporarily displaced from their homes must continue to receive support from their parents. If a child is in school and is eligible for support and living elsewhere than with the mother or father, and the child has not been placed there through a state agency, you can request that the Court modify your support obligation and order that the other parent pay their share of support to those individuals who are caring for the child. You may also request that the child come live with you and then modify support so the other parent pays support to you. Good Luck.

In Alberta if you marry a woman and you are supporting her children do you still have to pay for your son?

Canadian child support laws are similar to those in the US as they require a biological parent to support his or her minor child until that child reaches the age of majority, or the age designated in the order of support, or until a court decides otherwise. The remarriage or other such changes in the obligated parent's life does not relieve them of their financial responsibility to their minor child.
