Will child support change?

Will child support change?

Additional Information: 

My ex-wife and I have been divorced for 3 years.  If I get remarried, does that effect my current child support payments?  I heard that my new wife’s income may count towards total household income and I would have to pay more.

Attorney Answer:

Contributions from other household members towards the expenses that you list on your financial statement should also be listed on your financial statement. However, your new spouse’s income should not be included for purposes of calculating the child support guidelines which are used to determine the amount of child support that you can expect pay.
