In the state of Georgia, both parents income is considered in determining child support. If Dad must pay CS, his spouse's income is calculated in determing amount to be paid.AnswerFrom what I know, it is only the father's income that matters. Your income shouldn't matter at all. But if the court decides it does, then your husband's income would be included, because you are a family now. Answerto my understanding, your husband's income should have nothing to do with your child support. the child support is for your child and you ex has a responsibility to that child. whatever your husband contributes is extra and really none of your ex's business AnswerI can personally attest to the fact that a new spouses income should and usually does not come into play in any way as the new spouse has no ties to you and your ex's children unless the new spouse adopts your children and then that may be a different situation.
Usually the only time a new spouses income comes into play would be if new spouse if very well off and you are not working outsid of the home and have access to new spouses $$. You and new spouse are living in excess (new cars, new houses, vacations). Then the courts may take all of this into light and reduce some child support.
I would suggest if you are worried about a new spouses income may affect your child support that you keep all $$ separate, accounts etc. so that if the question does arise you can show a clear deliniation of $$$.
I know all this is a pain but some ex's paying support think that because you remarry well that somehow this entitles them to a reduction in support for your children.
Keep $$ separate is what I say and it will help out alot when the ex drags you to court trying to show that "you" (actually your children) don't need to be supported by "dad or mom" any more because stepdad or mom is loaded. The nerve of some people...AnswerIt depends on State law. In Oklahoma, the new spouse's income is immaterial. In Washington state, the new spouse's income is included. You need to check your state law.
nope, only takes the mother and fathers income into account. Spouses of the parents are not included
No, only the biological parents income counts.
In general, (re)marriage should not increase or decrease one's child support obligation, regardless of the new spouse's income or the presence of stepchildren.
No, only the biological parents pay child support for their child.
