I don't know if it depends where you live. But I don't think so it usually goes by the income..
Not automatically, he has to request a modification and if there is enough of a change in the amount then they'll follow through with it, but if there isn't they'll deny it.
Thats really sad he doesnt get to see his child
Where I live the amount taking out of his check don't change to much but if more children is on it they have to split the money more. But the 1st child on child support gets more money.
It really is sad there is legal paper work which allows him to have every second birthday/Christmas but she doesn't want him too. Only my partner can visit his son once a year. Its so heartbreaking if he does anything she has said she will make sure he never sees him so just doing it how she wants. She has said about the child support if she has to get less cause he is having another child that she wants him to.pay her money to her account.. Its so selfish.. Not sure what we can do
Get a lawyer, if she is ignoring the agreements of his child support, he can take her back to court, which may get him more custody time and than pay less support.
Thats sad, children are not puppets to be used by jealous exes. It's all too common for the father to be denied their arranged visitations but then do nothing about it. Maybe it would help to involve a family law laywer and get it resolved.
As for the child support order reduction for the first child, i dont think they will take into account any children your partner has unless you have a child support order as well. When I broke up with my ex, the CS arrangement hearing took into account his other 'debt' from his previos child, and i think he went back to get the first one lowered since now he was paying on 2 instead of just one. (Dont wuote me on that, i didn't really care to follow up with him on the subject lol) They have 'faq's' online if you google child support rights in your state. Good luck! Hope you get the visitation issue resolved, your baby deserved to know their older sibling regardless of what the jealous ex thinks (I was in a similar predicament with my ex and his first kids mom and he never did anything about fighting her for visitation which always bothered me that he just rolled over and let her 'win' so to speak. My son gets to see his older brother now when he visits his dad and he loves it more than anything because they play and rough house and all that good brotherly bonding stuff that he cant do at home with his little sister lol)
Your partner should apply for split custody, where they share equal time by law and it cancels out child support. It cost money to file papers, idk how much, but I'm sure his son is worth it. Child support doesn't decrease because he's having another child. Plus I wouldn't pay extra money with child support, child support is calculated according to both incomes. If the mother allowed him more time then he could do more financially. She's taking advantage and women like this upset me, my oldest's father does the most to not pay child support or be spend anytime, seasonal parent. So I get upset when men are wanting to be apart of their children's lives and for whatever reason the mom won't allow it. I suggest instead of giving her extra money, pay a lawyer and get more visitation rights.
Thank you for all your help.. It really is so selfish as when they are together my partner and his son they are so happy. Living in different states so when he leaves to come back home his son is upset and that's one of the reasons she doesn't want them to see each other. He has tried everything to try with her but it's impossible at this time he is keeping the peace to keep what little contact they have now still happening. Its unfair big time. Just wanted to try do something and her reason for not being happy for our child is because thinks she will loose money
. I think we will look into a family lawyer its not fair on his son..
Yea its not fair to child. Living in different states he should at least be able to get his son when school is on break and during summer.
She sounds like a selfish winch. All she cares about is money. It makes you think if she actually spends the child support money on you partners son and not herself. I wish you guys luck nobody deserves that
they will modify the child support, we are in a similar situation and the case worker actually suggested that we request a modification
my hubs pays $444 a month in child support, has no court set visitation at all, the judge actually told him that the only rights he has to his daughter is to pay child support.
it really makes me mad because like every time we have been able to see his daughter, she is wearing like hand me down clothes and just you can tell she isn't very well groomed or taken care of, but yet the mom and her other 2 kids are always in new clothes, hair cuts, and colored(the mom- and you can tell it was done professionally not out of a box) his daughter wanted to play softball this season but wasnt able too but the other 2 kids did?
the other 2 kids father is a dead beat alcoholic drug addict that wont hold a job
If he paying child support and giving her some money as well tell him Isaid for now on when he give her some money either wwritea check out to her in her name and pit whats its for or get a money order write who it for and why make a copy and save the part you need then I will save any text where she saying if he having other baby she gonna still try and get more money out of him on the side but make sure from now on he keep up with everything how much he gave her when he gave it to her and call this week to ask for an decrease in his child support cause a lot of things have change they gonna give her other court date make sure you bri ng everything with you to pay less and also try and tell them she not letting him see his child she can also get in trouble if its a court order if you need help sweetie I will help every step of the way I know what I'm doing I know they like to see proof more then anything be prepared for anything and everything try and get copy of tour text from your phone provider that will help too good luck oh if you need me please let me know in a week but do what I told you and it will work out
it will not get lower trust me ive tryed my husband is on child support and he payes 75 a week and he has a younger baby with me n its the same he pays n she dnt let him see her.
No it will not decrease bcuz he has another child. In order for him to be able to have time with the child he really needs to have a parenting plan filed with the court. If he wants time with his child he can file a motion w the court so a parenting plan can be set in place. He doesn't need a attorney (sometimes it's helpful but not necessary). There are court clinics (at courthouse) that can help him in the rt direction, in setting up a parenting plan.
