Child Support


#1

If the third child was born during your marriage then you will need to contest paternity in order to stop your child support obligation for the third child. If the judge ordered you to pay support for that child then you may have already been determined to be the father, in that case, there is nothing you can do to contest paternity unless the real biological father is willing to step forward.

Child was born 1 1/2 after divorce. Judge said third child takes away from her income, it makes her from her income making her income less tham mine- therefore I have to pay the extra.

You are not paying support for the third child based on the guidelines. The guidelines allow for a modification in support based on an obligation one parent may have to another child. I see your point, but the only way around this is to file a motion to modify child support along with a motion to deviate from the guidelines. However, it is unlikely you will be successful.
