    Support from Step Parent?
    My husbands ex wife is looking for a way to get child support based on our combined income as a married couple.
    Is that possible?
    Right now we pay her child support on time, every month based on his $85K salary.
    She works less than 20 hrs a week and lives with her parents.
    I am waiting to hear back from an attorney, but thought I would ask.

    Hello b:

    I don't think there is an absolute answer here. Sometimes these cases drag on for years, in different courts, with different claims and different challenges.

    Father Chuck, who may be along in a minute, will tell you that he's been divorced and back to court over the same issues (which every court changes) many, many times.

    Fair isn't a factor either. A quality lawyer is your only defense.
