CA Child support Laws

I'm marrying a wonderful man who is a father to a 20 yr old, 17 yr old and 15 yr old. Sad to say the ex wife tries to get money from him any way she can...mind you with her full time job as a school teacher, part time job and child support she makes about $10,000 a month. The children are takin care of by the grandma, aunts and the father when ever they need anything. 18yr old was driving a brand new Mustang when she turned 18 yrs old that matched her mom's.
Can the ex come after my income for child support?

Re: CA Child support Laws

  • You're best off asking your attorney on this one (though I do believe over 18 years are considered adult?). Good luck.
  • I am not an attorney, but have some experience in CA CS laws... Your income is not considered, however your combined income/tax status could affect the amount of money required for your household - so in essence he could see an increase because his living expenses will be assumed to be shared with you.

    There is a CA child support calculator on the DCSS that takes everything into account.  99% of the time, the outcome of this calculator is ordered.
  • I'm no attorney but I was under the impression he wouldn't have to pay for anyone over 18yrs of age. Unless he owes child support from previous years he did not pay. I could be completely wrong and asking an actual attorney would be the best course of action.
