There was an interesting argument over in the Newcomer's Club group, and I'd like to get other's opinion on it.
If a man divorces a woman, leaving her as the custodial parent to let's say 2 kids, and he is ordered to pay $300 per child. If the man gets remarried and has another child, should the support be evenly distributed among the THREE kids? What I mean is, should the support for the two older kids be reduced to $150 per child, because now he has a new child with his new wife to support?
I think that's BULL. The man is responsible for the two children he already has. If he chooses to have another child, the two previous children should still receive the same amount of child support. It's not their fault that Daddy now has a third child to support.
What do YOU think? Should child support payments be reduced if the man has more children with a different woman?

more then likely what happened here... was his expenses increased therefore how much child support he has to pay decreased. Its based off of how much you make and is going to bill..ex. The man has to make a living for himself as well for his new child and wife. Life happens and its not all about money.
