I am confused on the "2nd Family" issue.

Would someone please help me?

Scenario: (an example)...

Man and woman get married, have a child, then divorce.

Man pays $462/month for child support, based on gross income of $50,000 and CS Guidelines.

Same man gets married again, has a new child, gets another divorce....

When calculating child support for the 2nd child, do they unilaterally charge the same Guideline amount based on his income, where the new child gets the same $462?

Do they automatically deduct previous support obligation from his income and THEN determine how much he has to pay for 2nd child?

(ie. $50,000 - $5544(1st CS) = $44,456 NEW Gross Income) therefore:

2nd child would get $410 while 1st child still gets $462,

Do they take his income ($50,000) and his CS ($462) and divide it in

Do they take his income ($50,000) base CS on 2 children in the "table" ($753), and divide that amount between the children, so that they both get $376.50?

*So here is my question... How do they determine the new CS payments?*When calculating child support for the 2nd child, do they unilaterally charge the same Guideline amount based on his income, where the new child gets the same $462?

__So the Dad pays total of $924/month in CS?__*OR*Do they automatically deduct previous support obligation from his income and THEN determine how much he has to pay for 2nd child?

(ie. $50,000 - $5544(1st CS) = $44,456 NEW Gross Income) therefore:

2nd child would get $410 while 1st child still gets $462,

__So Dad pays total $852/month in CS?__*OR*Do they take his income ($50,000) and his CS ($462) and divide it in

**half**, whereas**each child**gets $231?*OR*Do they take his income ($50,000) base CS on 2 children in the "table" ($753), and divide that amount between the children, so that they both get $376.50?

**Even asking this question is confusing, I hope what I am asking is clear enough***I am asking this out of sheer curosity. I am not personally in a situation where my ex has any other children, or even a wife for that matter.**After posting in a different thread, I realized my ignorance on this topic may be leading me to be incorrect in my assumptions.**If anyone can tell me how this system works, I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.*
