Good morning I am sorry to hear about this. Yes, itis possible that you will need of paying child support and that the current agreement, will need to be modified. I say this because child support is for the needs of the child and the mother can not just waive it and give it up. It can not just be traded for the car, home or tuition which benefit her and not your daughter, so itis possible when you divorce and address this with the Judge, that he/she may not be comfortable with it. Yes, the mother may advise she agrees with this and does not seek support but the Judge will have the final say based upon the best interest of your daughter and the home, car and other marital assets and debts will eventually need to be divided if you can not agree on those.
