A hypothetical

My friend and I were talking the other day and we got on the subject of child support and what happens when a man fathers multiple children with multiple women. Okay lets say over the course of 5 years a man fathers 4 children with 3 different women. Now half of his entire check is going to pay child support for all of these kids. The state cannot take more than half of his check for child support. So what happens if he fathers ANOTHER child with a different woman? Does she not get child support? Is the child support on the other kids lowered to accomidate the newest addition?

Like I said this is hypothetical neither me nor my friend would ever put ourselves in this situation, lol.

  • They can lower support if he takes a pay cut, so I don't see why this would be any different.

  • I would think the amount for all of the children would be revised. But I could be wrong.

    Maybe this guy just needs a pack of condoms. Or a little snipage.

  • IDK but then seriously, do many guys who have mulitple children by different women really care is they support thier children? I'm sure that some may, but believe that the majority don't.

  • Agree the "man" needs to stop being a ho and the women really should know who they are hooking up with well before making babies with them
