My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

Unfortunately, no. Child support in New York state is based on a percentage of the paying parent's income, and the number of minor children. A new spouse has no obligation to support a person's children from a prior marriage, so her income is not considered for child support purposes.

I apologize that this was probably not the Answer you were hoping to receive. However, it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand.

Good luck.
