My ex- got remarried and her new husband makes a substantial income. I don't feel as though that should play a big part in the amount I pay because they are my children. Since my emancipation, I have purchased our family home back from her, and now have more visitation with my children. The money I pay should go to food and clothing, but every time I see my kids, which happens to be every other week 6 months a year and every weekend for the other 6 months, the kids have holes in their shoes, and dress as though they were not taken care of.
I am licensed in California. The determination of child support will vary from state to state so you should consult an attorney in your state as well. Your child support should not be impacted by your ex's new husband's income. Child support is based on your income and that your ex-wife. If she choses not to work or work less because of her husband's income, then it may be a factor. Support will only change if their has been a substantial change in circumstance since the last order of the court. This is usually a change in either or both parties income. It may also be that the parenting time schedule has changed. Consult an attorney in your state to see if you meet the requirements for a modification in your state.
