If I remarry, can I still receive child support from my child’s biological parent?

Remarriage and Child Support

Yes.  Your marital status has no immediate impact on getting child support.  In fact, your spouse’s income isn’t part of the presumptive child support guidelines at all when calculating the amount of support to be paid by the noncustodial biological parent.  However, if your new spouse adopts your child, then the other biological parent’s support would cease, as his/her rights will have been terminated.
