Child support calculator


#1

Yes. If there are children from a second marriage then the stepparent’s income can be included. I thought that this particular question meant that parent had a previous child support payment responsibility but maybe I never read that correctly…


#2

Yes, his salary will make an impact on the child support number.

this confuses me…

so, if i pay cs for two kids, and i marry a woman who also has two of her own kids, will her income cause my obligation to my ex-wife for cs to go up???

I believe that this is children from a second marriage not children from a previous marriage; stepchildren. In other words, if you have children that you are paying child support for, you remarry, you and your new spouse have a child together, then your spouses salary can be included in the calculator…

Only your biological or adopted children are included in the guideline calculations. Stepchildren are not included.

Hey,

I am using your child support calculator and on the last page it asks if the other parent is with the parent of the additional children that she is responsible for. A yes answer makes a big difference and this amount is different when you figure it on the DHHS web calculator.

My situation is that my ex-wife and I had two children and in her new marriage she has two more children. She is still with the father of these two children. Is this the reason for the last question on your web calculator and would his overall salary make a difference?
