Question asked on July 4th, 2019

Q: I just finalized my divorce and I’m on child support only because I make a little more. She is prego by the new guy. Will it help me lower my payment to her later on for any reason?

A: Short version:  “no.”  Existing law says that, if anything, additional children would be a deviation factor for increasing support to a parent, not decreasing it.  However, entirely new laws (regulations) are set to go into effect by October and it is unknown, today, how multiple-children issues will be addressed in those regulations.  You should review them after they become effective to see if they alter your situation.
