Obviously not my situation but something posted on my military wives forums
My husband has a prior son from his first marriage. Now we have a child and are married. He pays child support every month. He is a certain rank in the Army. If he ranks up does that mean he has to pay more
In child support? I mean I wouldn't call it fair really if he has two kids. He provides for his first one and now he has one with me so shouldn't that not be allowed for child support to raise?
There is also a raging debate as to wether or not "extra pay" should be included in CS. Some states do consider it some do not. here are some opinions
ETA: OP did not state whether the state counted subsquent kids. So I don't know if her child is counted or not.
