  • No, it's based only off of your income and the childs father's income.

  • Nope. It's based on his income - not yours. Nothing will change and you have nothing to report.

  • It depends on the state. Some states base it off of his income, while other state base it off of both incomes.

  • I had moved in with my boyfriend and it didn't have any effect on the child support at all.Child support is for the benefit of the child,not the parent.

  • Not in my state. It is based on how much you make and how much the child's father makes. Then some calculation to compute % of each parent to arrive at 100% amount of money, say 60% dad and 40% mom. Your ex could raise issues if he does not feel that your new bf is a good influence on his children and could cause trouble there.

  • No it is based on income as well as the current custody agreement in my state.
