Child Support Calculations & New Spouse


#1

I know this has been answered a few times before, but I was hoping to get the actual statute number or link to the law that states the answer…so here is the question:

When I get remarried, will my new wife’s income IN ANY WAY be considered as part of the CS calculations? How is the best way to ensure her income (our combined income) will not be considered? Is there a need to place an addendum in the court order to this effect?

Thank you.

No. Only the parent has a legal obligation to support their child. The stepparent’s salary is not factored in, just your income will be used. NCGS 50-13.4 is the statute.
