Thank you for your patience. Your answer is below. When you get your answers, you will be asked to give a rating - 4 or 5 stars are appreciated. This is important because this is how I credit for doing my job. Don't worry, you can still ask related follow-up questions even after you've given a rating. Thank you!

ANSWER: Your remarriage won’t directly affect child support in California because in the vast majority of cases unless the child would suffer extreme hardship if the new spouse's income is not used, only the child’s biological parents have a legal duty to support the child, not the child’s stepparents. In other words, in California, the new spouse's income is not considered unless there are extraordinary circumstances causing extreme and severe hardship to the child.

I hope that answers your questions. Please remember to give me credit for doing my job by clicking on 4 or 5 stars at the top of your screen.

A BONUS is also appreciated if you feel I've earned one today. And remember, you can still ask follow-up questions if you need to.

If you want to talk on the phone, I am available to do that for an additional fee.

And if you have new questions in the future, you should write FOR JAMES in the question. That way, I become your personal Professional.

Thank you!
