My Ex just informed me that him and his fiance are having a baby so what happens to the child support that he pays to me does it go down because he is having another child?

  • Depends on the state. It used to be "no" for almost every state. However my husbands child support just went up for review, it is based out of Utah and since I didn't work the employee handling the review factored in both myself and DD into the support and he was ordered to pay over $200 less than what the original calculations put him at.
