so DH & I are expecting our 1st child. He has a child that he pays support for. So I told him when the baby is born he needs to let them know that he has another child. He said no bc they would raise his support. Now he pays 500 a mth for 1 kid. He did get a raise & now makes 17. a hr instead of 15. but I told him that they would have to slpit support between the two kids.
We live in Texas and I dont know how it works, so I was looking to see if anyone could help me out on this one.

Oh, okay. In Texas each divorce and child support order is treated as a separate case - and therefore awarded separately without consideration of the number of children the dad has by different moms. Now, he could have something like that done - BUT he would have to have the ex agree to it. Which may not be likely. I mean getting the other woman to agree to have her child receive less support because the man has or is having another child by someone else, is not very likely. A judge can award whatever the two parties agree to (if he feels it's within reason and allows for proper support of the child). Example: Our judge awarded me a "no visitation" order.
