It might and it might not. If she isn't working then she won't need daycare so this could make your support go down. Your support will not change until someone files a motion to modify it based on a change in circumstances. You can log on to the Pine Tree Legal website and use their child support worksheet to run numbers to figure what the new support number might be by plugging in your income, hers and the daycare and health insurance numbers. Remember any agreement you two might come to is not enforceable until it is signed by the Judge.
