If a man has three children with his wife and one outside the marriage, how does child support work? Does a judge consider this in ordering child support?
Yes, child support is generally determined by parties’ gross income minus expenses for allowable deductions. A court can consider parties’ other children in determining the expenses a party is already paying. You should speak with an experienced family law attorney to represent your interests at a child support hearing. Contact Mark E. Sawicki, P.A. today for a free consultation.
