Q: I pay child support and we Re wondering before we move ahead with getting married by us being married will her check be garnished as well? We are aware of filing taxes separately etc. And we live on NY
A: Rarely will a spouse’s income be counted towards child support. The rare instances where it is include when a spouse is completely supporting the payor, or where there’s an issue of “above-the-cap” income (& in the latter case, it’s only 1 factor amongst many).
