My husband pays child support to his ex-girlfriend. She does not work as she claims but the son says that she does.: speculating...under the table. She lives for free because she occupies the house her father bought. I am financially dependent on him for now. My husband and I are expecting our first baby: twins. Will that increase his child support?
State/Country relating to question: California
Hello,So sorry to hear of this dilemma. If my answer is not clear to you, please ask me for clarification by using the reply button.Your husband's child support to his ex girlfriend will not be increased due to the fact that you are expecting twins (congratulations!).Your husband may want to petition the court for modification of the child support that he pays to his ex-girlfriend to reflect her earningsPlease let me know if you have any questions concerning my answer.

I ask this questions because he received a letter regarding possible increase and both parties are being asked for financial update.My husband made $70,000 - $85,000 last year this includes overtime (gross)...Without it it would be less. His is paying more than $2K for the mortgage. There are other household expenses he is shouldering primarily. His child support has been around $730 for 12 years. Now the child support wants to increase that. In 15 days they might put a stipulation on increase to the court (????) The CSU in that county is asking for 180 days to reply.
Let back up please. I think would be helpful to clarify how California child support works.The California Child Support Guidelines are based on the Income Shares Model which includes consideration of both parents income. The monthly support amount is divided proportionally according to each parent's income and then offset to establish which parent will pay the other parent for support of the child. All income is typically verified by examining past W-2's.Therefore your husband's child support will increase if he makes more money or if the other parent makes less money than when the support order was issued. Thus in order to reduce the amount of child support that your husband will be required to pay, he will need to convince the court that the other parent is working or should be working and ask that the Court impute an income to herI hope that it helps to know this informationWebLaw40725.8139177431
