If that were the case then you could have 300 children and lower your payment to almost nothing.
Typical money hungry women wanting the child support to stay the same. How about the courts provide proof of spending the child support money on the child rather than on manicures and make-up!

Does anyone know if once you are married and have a child (in that marriage) would it lower the amount of child support you are paying from a previous relationship??
I am currently paying ALOT of child support for my first kid. His mother and I were not ever married. I am now remarried and have just found out we are expecting a child. Wouldn't that drop the amount I am paying to my son's mother- since I will be supporting two kids and a wife now. I was told it would drop it if I went back to court or my lawyers and told them that I was expecting another child. My friend told me to handle it the same way I would if my son's mother got a new job with a high pay rate, they would just refigure the amount I'm paying?
Does anyone have any information on this?
when baby is born you can ask for a review on the case because there was a change in your family they will give a review and you'll have to have proof of changes usually they will lower it my daughter gets support on her kids

Contrary to what bssouth said, yes, your child support will lower if you father another child in your current marriage. Child support is based through the Supreme Court on what your annual gross income is compared to what the child's mother your obligate to pay child support to, gross income is annually.
mine didn't. When my last child was born, it kept my child support from being raised, but it didn't lower the amount I already paid. However, if it has been more than 3 years (not 5) since your case has been reviewed, you can contact child support and they will send you the appropriate paperwork to fill out requesting your case to be reviewed. If I were you, I would wait until after your child is born to do this. They don't take an unborn child into consideration. If you try and fail now, it will be another 3 years before you can try again.

I currently have 2 kids under the age of 1 with my fiance. He is currently paying child support for his first born. Will his payments be lowered considering he has 2 more kids to support. Do courts take that into consideration. he's been paying the same amount for about 6 years

Probably not...afterall, you already knew you had a child to support when you decided to have another. I am not trying to be mean, but it is the truth in a lot of cases.
actually, those who posted are incorrect! Every biological child is taken into consideration when calculating child support b/c the courts figure the father has to support the new baby as well... duh... it will no decrease by half but in tennessee it decreases by a third for each new additional child... of course not step children

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.
That's total BS. I pay 500 dollars a month for one child. Every time I go back to court over my ex, she quits whatever job she is working at to make it look as if her income is lower. I never get to see my daughter when it is my turn and I have brought the cops over and over and they say it is a civil matter and we will have to go back to court to handle it. I have a parenting plan that states I am to get my daughter the 2nd and 4th weekend every month and every time I try to get her the mother pulls the same old stuff. My attorney said the cops are supposed to make the child go, the cops say the attorny is lying, and blah blah blah. Every one seems to know everything when it comes to this stuff but unless you have been through it you have no idea. Basically the only time I get to see her is when her mother has something she needs to do which is also BS. The courts always side with the woman even though it is clear that the father can provide a better, more stable environment for the child. Not all cases but in some. Yes it does matter if you have another child to support. You have to do the whole form 14, they take the woman's income, the father's income, then come up with an amount. They then deduct the time the child is SUPPOSED to be with the father and come up with the figure that way. If you have another child that you are supporting it is also taken into consideration. If you provide medical, dental coverage that is taken into consideration. Most of these moms do not work anyways, they just use the child to get support from the father so their lazy asses don't have to work. Then they live in low income housing, get MC+ on the child and they are pretty much set. The sad thing is on top of the 500 I already pay, his retarded ass mom still calls me and wants more. Since when did it take 500+ a month to take care of just the child especially in a town like caruthersvill or hayti. It's all a bunch of crap. I bet if it was happening to you, you would be singing a different tune. On top of the 500 she requested alimony and we were only married for two years. Thank god the judge was smart enough to deny that. But all things are taken into consideration when you are in front of the judge and you start breaking down that form 14
Whatever

What are you even saying? I can't understand mumbling. Come back try it again and we will go from there. Are you saying that it does not matter or it does? I pay child support and maybe it is different on a case by case basis, but I know my child, the one I just had was taken into consideration. I even went back to court just for that reason, I was having another child and needed to support him also, told the judge what was going on, and he reduced my support paid to my first wife. So are you saying that doesn't happen because it sure did with me. Please know what you are talking about before you come on here with stupid stuff like that.

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 work for a law firm I am not familure with any of your cases but here is some legal advise. To calculate child support you use a form 14 (you can find this online) you fill in the blanks and it calculates the ammount so if you google form 14 fill in the blanks and it comes out wrong than you need an attorney. Usually if the mother is working than it increases the child support. My child support is 556.00 and now he ismodifiying it and now it is going to be 728.56 eventhough he has 2 other kids in his custody my income increased it.

Your income, let me get this straight, you are saying because you married him, they are taking your income into consideration for him paying child support? If I am wrong then let me know, but if that is the case you guys are getting screwed. My ex wife tried to pull that on me when we went to court and the judge told her that he could not figure in my spouses income when it came to the form 14. They base child support off of the fathers income only. My current wifes income was never figured in, but my ex wanted it to be and the judge told her no, that is not her child so I can not include her income. It pissed her off but she is just another money hungry wh*** anyways. It was even said by her that if she was not receiving child support she would turn my son over to me. So please tell me that it is not all about the money for these type of women. Also each time I try to take her back to court for her income increasing, she quits whatever job she is working or has her employer put down less hours than what she really is working that way the majority of the support falls back on me. These women need to stop using their children for a pay check. On top of what I pay, close to 500, she still calls me every month telling me I BETTER send her some more money because there are things my son needs. Now when she says things he needs, she is talking about gaming systems, 150 dollar pair of shoes, and just outrageous things like that. I told her for 150 I could get my son 6 to 8 pairs of shoes and her response is my son ain't wearing no damn cheap shoes, he can only wear the ones that are at least 100 dollars or more. She even has him brain washed now to where any time I go to buy him something when he is with me that he will say nope, my mom says I don't have to wear this name brand. I can only wear American Eagle, Hollister, things like that, and I tell him fine, if your mom wants you to wear that stuff then she can buy it for you because I sure am not going to. I don't even spend that much on my own shoes. These women really do use their kids for money and the courts go right along with the woman for some reason every time. To all you money hungry bitches, back off, you are getting more than enough as it is already, stop being greedy little bitches
