I remarried several years ago and my wife and I just had our first child together. She was eating for two well before the birth of our daughter and now that our daughter has been born we are realizing that we could be conceivably paying over 1400 a month when dependent care is factored in. Since my first wife and I divorced over five years ago my child support has never been changed and I have never missed a payment. What I am wondering is how will the birth of my daughter affect my child support to my first wife? In the five years since we divorced she moved 1 1/2 hours away and even if I wanted to i cannot spend additional time with him because of the distance involved to see him (no fault of my own). In addition, my first wife was going to school full-time but I believe has now graduated but I have no clue as to her current income or if she is even working full-time (she was imputed income in my permanent order for child support).
My question is can my child support be reduced due to the birth of my new baby girl? If so, how do I compute it? My wife plans on continuing to work so do we factor in my second wife’s income into whatever calculation is required? How do we calculate it using the rosen.com child support calculator? Can any reduction be computed on the expenses that were incurred before the birth? Would this be worth pursuing with a lawyer to get reduced? My son from my first marriage is now 9 years old.
