Resolved Question:

I live in MA, my ex-husband lives in NH, I have 1 child with him that he pays child support, he is currently going thru a divorce with his present wife - they have 2 kids - will that affect my child support at all? Looking forward to hearing from you.

In general it should not affect your child support. Typically, when there are multiple child support orders in the picture, the amount of your first child support is deducted from the calculation of the second child support order and the second order would be based on the income he has available with his present wife. In essence his income that was used for your child support is left untouched (set aside) and the new order is based on his balance of his income to generate a new support order. So your child's support should not be affected. Of course this is all based on guidelines and the particular needs of the children.
