In Ohio child support differs by counties. According to my husband's case they are not allowed to use my income to figure the amount of support he pays to his ex.


The new spouse is not responsible for the support of children from a previous relationship of his or her partner.

In community property states the court in some cases can use the combined income of a couple who remain married when it pertains to support of a child born as a result of the husband's infidelity.


Not that I have seen. They SHOULD impute income to her based on her age, education and past earning ability. But generally that only applies to a man. The mother can claim nearly any absurdly low amount and the court will accept it. The man however can be unemployed due to no fault of his own, have absolutely no income, and the court will impute income at what ever he was earning at his highest point. Then they will take his license, passport, etc, and jail him when he is unable to pay. And he is not afforded a lawyer to represent him because this is not a CRIMINAL case. Never mind he is still in jail. But he has "the keys" to the jail if he pays the support that he couldn't pay before he was locked away. Debtors prison?

This probably varies by state however in order to obtain child support you will need to prove who the father of the child is.

If he refuses to submit to the test, in most states he would be declared the father. In fact, if he refuses the test and is deemed the father of the child and it is later found that he is not, in most states he is still required to continue to pay support.
