Once I'm married, will my income be considered toward child support for my new husband's children from a previous marriage?

Asked over 2 years ago - South Bend, IN

The divorce was in Michigan and was handled by friend of the court. The parents have shared custody, but the father agrees to paying child support since the children live mostly with their mother.

    Answered . Not usually, but you should still consult with a local attorney to review all your rights, options and obligations so you are fully informed about the situation. Sometimes a simple telephone consult will be sufficient. You can find local attorneys by searching among the profiles here on Avvo. Good luck!
