How is child support calculated for two children with two different mothers?
1 attorney answer
As to your desire for shared parenting time, that will depend upon the schedules of the parents and child and what schedule is in the best interests of the child. As to having shared parental decision making, that will depend upon the parenting perspectives of each parent and the ability of the parents to communicate and cooperation.
Assuming the child support for the first child is by court order, that amount is deducted from your income for determining the child support for the second child. If the child support for the first child has not been reviewed for a while, the mother of the first child may seek a review, which could change the numbers.
You should consult an attorney in person to review your court orders as the first child and the finances of your divorce.
