What If The Other Woman Files For Child Support?

My husband cheated with a woman who’s now pregnant. I don’t want to leave my husband. How do I make sure our children continue to be supported if the other woman files for child support? Can I file for child support against my husband if we still live together as husband and wife?

Overview

The tongue-n-cheek answer and most attorneys’ 1st thought is that you might want to invest in a vasectomy for your husband. Child support is normally sought by a custodial parent against a non-custodial parent. In other words, the parents normally do not live together. In Kentucky, the legislature got it right and made it unnecessary for you to seek a child support order.

How do I make sure my prior born children with my husband receive enough support if my husband’s income might be reduced by a child support order for a later born child out of wedlock?

Kentucky’s child support laws provide that a deduction will be made in the child support calculation for a later born child(ren) for the support to the extent payment is made the child support calculation if a parent is legally responsible for and is actually providing support for other prior born children who are not the subject of a particular proceeding.
