Child support question.

My sons biological father pays child support. He recently got engaged and they will be married next year in October. After doing so, will her income be combined with his for child support? We live in NY and he is in PA, he actually asked me this question, I am not trying to get more money, lol. He pays $800 a month already.

  • No, her income does not count toward what he should pay. She is not responsible for the child, he is.

  • No - she has no responsibility to pay for your child, so her income will not be considered. Mine was not considered when I married my ex - the case was handled in NY where his child lived with his mother.

  • No but she will have to pay it if he doesn't. My x's wife pays his bc he's still a deadbeat.

  • No, the new spouse's income is not calculated.
