Can My Child Mothers Husbands Wages be accounted for Child Support

by Bill
(Norwood ny)

I am a single father of a 3 year old son. I am the Non-Custodial Parent of one child. I am no longer with his mother, and have been making very high priced child support payments. Every week I pay over $170 dollars for child support, another 60$ dollars a week for back medical for my son, and another $210 week for health insurance from him, and myself. Now my child’s mother pays nothing for him, and recently I was ordered to pay day care expenses. I am only a union foreman for the sheet metal workers and do not make that much money. Is there some sort of cap a father has to pay, or since my child’s mother is now married, can her new husband’s income play a factor, in all this nightmare. I don't mind paying for my son, but it seems like the mother has no financial responsibility for her child. Could you please help?


Thank you,
Bill Woodward

Hi Bill,

Normally the spouse of the ex income is not counted. We recommend that you request a child support modification if your eligible. It seems that you are paying a lot for one child.
