Can child support be reduced if non custodial parent remarries?

Can child support be reduced if non custodial parent remarries?

Generally speaking, remarriage has no impact on whether you receive child support or not. This is especially true if the new spouse is able to provide extra financial assistance for the child. In such cases, the non-custodial parent's child support obligations may be reduced accordingly.

Can a spouse’s income be included in child support?

Generally, a new spouse's income will not be used in child support calculations. Child support is the obligation of the parents themselves. In determining the non-custodial parent's potential child support obligation to the current spouse, the court will likely take the new spouses income into account.

Do I have to pay child support if I lose custody?

In a nutshell, loss of custody does not affect the legal relationship between you and your child, only the living arrangements. And, most importantly, you maintain responsibility to support your child financially (that is, you are not excused from paying child support!).

Can a mother drop back child support?

Child support back pay cannot be totally forgiven or waived, but there are a few situations that can help you handle it. Double-check the amount the court states you are in arrears. If your child lived with you for a period that the back pay is referencing, the judge may lessen the child support amount.
