Hi- My ex wants to raise my child support because she found out that I am making more money. She is a stay at home mom and wants to use minimum wage as her income. Her husband, however, is a ER doctor and make $275k per year. Does his income play a factor at all?
Family Lawyer: LegalGems, Lawyer replied 6 months ago
Thank you. No, a non parent has no obligation to contribute to a step child's financial cost so the court will not factor in their income. However if the new spouse contributes to expenses in such a manner that it decreases the parent'a household expenses the court may deviate from the statutory guideline since it frees up more of their income which can be used for the child's benefit.
