Will Child Support Change if I have a Second Family (or Eighth Family)?

The Child Support Guidelines in Massachusetts include the following provision:
"Obligations to a subsequent family may be used as a defense to a request to modify an order seeking an increase in the existing order but such obligations should not be considered a reason to decrease existing orders."
