Does Child Support go down if the father has another baby?
If a person who is ordered to pay child support has other children, this will affect the amount of child support a future child gets. Child support ordered for the second child will not be as high as the child support ordered for a previous child, especially if the paying parent’s income has not changed.
Why is child support so unfair?
Here are all the reasons this is unfair to dads: Child support is built on the presumption that one parent (mothers) care for the children while another (father) pays for them. This shoehorns men and women into sexist roles, with men forced to be the breadwinner.
Does Mother income affect child support?

That legal obligation does not change when one or both parents repartner.
Can I use my super to pay child support debt?
Release of superannuation under financial hardship does not go towards outstanding tax or child support debts (what we would call an ‘offset’), as it comes straight from the Fund to your account – where as something like a Tax Return refund would.
Can the IRS take my refund if my husband owes child support?
If your state child support enforcement office has reported your overdue child support to the Treasury Department, the IRS will take your tax refund to cover the arrears (often called a tax refund seizure). The IRS will then give the money to the appropriate child support agency.
What happens if you marry someone who owes child support?
