Child support calculations


Dear Jumper:

No, neither your ex’s new husband nor your new wife’s income is included in the child support calculation, unless one of them has signed a voluntary support obligation. Thank you.

My ex is remarried as am I. If child support is recalculated can/does the income of her new husband? Also, would my wifes income be included as well?
