I just found out that my child's father got married this past weekend. Will this affect the amount he will have to pay me in child support?

Depends on where you live. Here in Michigan, no. But, some states it would.

Here in KY it really only affects them if they have other children, depending on how lenient the judge is lol

She has a child but i was told she doesn't have custody of her son (something about signing her rights over to her BD so she could finish school...i don't buy it)... I have a feeling he married her to try to lower the amount he would have to pay

I think Alabama is that way too. Michigan it doesn't matter. You pay according to what you make, not by how many dependents you have in your home.

In Ohio they took off for how many kids BD was paying child support for. He has 2 other boys, so they discounted his CS to me a certain percentage of what he was paying for the other 2. They didn't even ask how many people in the household or bills or anything of that nature, JUST the ones hew as paying CS for.

I don't think HER child counts
