My Ex-Spouse Has Remarried And Has Another Family To Support. How Will This Affect The Support That My Children Are Due?

Even though the other parent has a second family, it does not mean that his or her responsibility to the first family goes away. However, the amount of the support order can be affected if he/she has responsibility for supporting another child(ren) who is his/her biological or adopted child(ren). You must be notified first and given an opportunity to provide information before your support order can be changed.
