No. The biological parent is still responsible. Should they lose visitation because there is no longer a "need" for the opposite parent?

Of course not.  A child's needs don't go away because their father chose to begin a new family.

No, I am a step mom and when we got married, his CS did not increase. Why should it decrease if BM gets married??

In Oregon it does not change. The state here does not count spousal income, only the bio parents income.

I'm the odd one- I never think CS should be lowered. Kids do not get cheaper as they grow up.

No, a step parent shouldn't be required to support the child.
