With one out of every two marriages ending in divorce, statistics indicate both divorced partners will probably remarry at least once. 

Even though a stepparent may participate in all aspects of raising his stepchild, the "unofficial" parenting by a stepparent is rarely factored into legal decisions made on behalf of the child.

Additionally, no uniform treatment of the stepparent-stepchild relationship exists in the United States.

divorce stepfamilyThe law works to protect marriage and nuclear or traditional families.

Stepfamilies, however, are considered incomplete institutions to be ignored and as stigmatized groups, less functional and more problematic than nuclear families. 

The "progress" made in expanding the stepparent’s role is primarily geared toward increasing stepparent financial obligations without increases in parental rights or recognition of the important roles that many stepparents play in their stepchildren’s lives.

mens divorce lawyer Janet Yu JohnstonQuestion:

How do child support laws work when you remarry? I pay my ex-wife alimony and child support. I am getting remarried and will have to fully support my new family.

Can I reduce my current child support and alimony obligations because of my remarriage and supporting my new wife?

I have since remarried after my divorce was finalized.

What claim does my ex-wife have on my QDRO (Qualified Domestic Relations Order) since we still have yet to complete the paperwork concerning my retirement fund?

I live in Virginia and we divorced in California so which state has jurisdiction?

One in every two first marriages ends in divorce, and (as if that's not bad enough) the divorce rate goes up exponentially with each subsequent remarriage.

It's not that couples are incapable of making a succeeding marriage work; it's that they are not adequately prepared for the problems that will inevitably arise. 

There will be conflicts between you and your beloved on how you are going to deal with finances, holidays, child visitations, co-parenting your stepchildren, etc.

You need to know how to handle it.
