Not all women are money hungry--The part about the father not being able to see his little one is terrible😠It makes me mad that some women do that. I'm a single mom and I make a significant amount less then my ex husband and his new wife. It's hard to make ends meet but I would never keep my child away from their dad. Hurting your child--in that way isn't worth it.

It varies by state. You need to contact an attorney. In my state, yes, the support can be reduced since the courts do not penalize the newborn and recognizes that the newborn will also need financial support and is not to be neglected. However, if the father wishes to go to court, he must file for a change in support and have the newborn deducted from the support. This will occur for each subsequent birth as well. HOWEVER!!!!! The new wife's income is also included in determining this amount. If she is voluntarily not working it underemployed, then income can be imputed. In my state, if the new wife has higher education and/or is making a good salary, it would be best to let sleeping dogs lie ;)

If that were the case then you could have 300 children and lower your payment to almost nothing.
So the mother can move on marry,have more children, and be at stay at home mom but the father cannot remarry and have more children ???

It matters what the mother makes because it is both parent responsibility to take care of the child. One should. It have to pay more than the other. Unfortunately it doesn't always work that way. If the father has another child that child will count in what he pays because all the children should be taken care of equally. That is the reason why the other child's support will go down. It is based on what the father makes. If the mother that has primary custody does not work the child support office will start asking question on why there is no income and how the mother is able to care for the child. If welfare is involved they make the father who Is working carry insurance if available and pay only a percentage of support.

if your circumstances have changed and you are not at the same rate of pay as before you can ask for a review. that is the only situation where support can be lowered.

U kno what. His child support will most likely be adjusted. Depends on the state. Jus because he's married and is expecting a new member in the family gives complete reason to adjust his child support. He has his past relationship child to care and the new one. Doesn't mean he doesn't love them both the same. But not everyone has the load of money. Why should his new wife and baby be denied for the same treatment his ex and other child are getting? Money doesn't grow on trees. Does the new wife and baby deserve to starve because there's not enuf funds to go around. Does his new wife not deserve to have a baby with her husband. U people sound selfish. Look at whole picture. At least he helps out and cares for his other child. Plenty of dead beat dads out there.

I've been thru it with my ex. Yes I am the previous wife and we had a child prior. When him and his new wife had their baby child support lowered his payment. I agree with Ransack. I moved on and remarried. I had another child. I don't see what is so wrong with my ex doing the same and I don't think that my son's sibling should be deprived. Maybe I am just different than others. I thought parent's were supposed to work together for the sake of their child not against one another. I agree it's selfish to think otherwise and it just sounds like others are being money hungry which is wrong when it comes to any child. The answer is yes. In the state of Missouri having another child is grounds for a review and adjustment of child support

I know of some people wrote:
I know a guy that has four children, all from different mothers. When he started off with the first one, he paid 300 a month to one mother. Now that he has four, he still only pays 300 total for all of them. You can't expect someone to keep paying the same amount when there are other children involved. If the man is only making 1500 a month, do you honestly think he should pay 300 for each child, no, it doesn't work that way. Figure it up ok, 300 x 4 is 1200, that would only leave him 300 a month to live on. To some of you mothers that are just out for money yeah, that is ok in your eyes. Use some common sense and stop being money hungry wh**** when it comes to your ex husband or ex boyfriend and stop using your kids to get more money. Get off of your lazy butts and get a JOB. Maybe that would help instead of depending on the fathers for every thing.
I can agree i am a mother who works and does not get any child support when my ex has two jobs. An i would be happy to get what ever i can to help but now that im married my husband pays child support, plus insurance and that ex of his is trying to squeeze every dime from him and she is money hungry. It just really depends on the situation.

It's easy to complain when you aren't the one that is taking care of the child. Most custodial parents(moms) are the ones responsible for the day in day out care of the child. They work thier lives around what they have to do. Most noncustodial parents(dads) might have them a couple of days a month, they can do what they want when they want, and that's usually when another baby gets made. I'm not saying all dads are like that but sadly it is the majority.
And who's fault is it that the fathers are only involved 2/3 days out of the week? Oh we can't blame the money hungry greedy women who fight for their child for more time to collect more support now can we? And maybe if the custodial parent can't handle a child or children then maybe more custody should be given to the non custodial parent to help out rather than ask for $. It's disgusting how women function these days and I am a woman! If I was in any financial situation making it difficult for me to raise my child I would ask the father to be more involved and hands, perhaps 50/50 custody?! It's about raising a child you made together TOGETHER!

I think your crazy for even considering having your payment lowered. It's not your sons mothers fault that you are married and expecting, she has nothing to do with your new life. Be a man and handel you business get a second job or work over time taking care of your child is a part of life don't try to take away from him due to your decissions.
She should get off her lazy ass n get a better job, work two jobs, 3, 4, she getting money so put the baby in daycare do her part...

So you're saying since one sorry ass woman decided to cheat on my husband and now gets child support he shouldn't be able to have another family? No the girl cheated screwed him over in court and he moved on and started another family that he has every right to do so!

I have been thru this. I have 2 children with someone who is already paying child support. First, the baby has to have been born by the next modification. Then u will get a credit for your new baby. Depending if your pay has changed the mother to the other child's child support will be lowered. If you need to know anything else just ask me.
So how much did it lower your childsupport ?

I know in my situation my ex was paying 334 a month and now he pays 154 a month. Which I don't mind because he has two other children with his wife and they deserve to be supported equally. If you do the math technically to be fair I should only be getting 110 and some change so I'd say for us atleast that's more than fair. Honestly I'd like to get rid of child support all together and just have him pay out of pocket or help out here and there. I think child support has caused more arguments and more harm than it has helped but that's just me.
