Douglas Lee Bryan's answer If you're collecting through the state, contact your caseworker with the Support Enforcement office. Otherwise, a judgment will have to be filed in your case terminating the child support obligation.
Ellen Cronin Badeaux's answer The court will not consider subsequent children in setting the amount of child support for the previous children. The state policy behind it is that you knew you had this 1st ob ligation when you took on additional obligation(s). The only break you get is if you take a 2d job to support the subsequent childrwn, that income won't be considered.
Ellen Cronin Badeaux's answer No you do not have 2 competing child support orders. Latest one prevails. Therefore you need to pay directly to her 58% of extraordinary expenses every calendar year and lay your child support through the state.

Then pay within 30 days.

For instance if the Caddo Judgment specified holiday visitation and the Orleans Judgment specifies child support, the Caddo Judgment is still valid as to holiday visitation. But if the Caddo Judgment specified Thanksgiving Christmas, New Years, Mardi Gras & Easter but the Orleans judgment only specifies Thanksgiving, Christmas, & Easter, then New Years and Mardi...
Douglas Lee Bryan's answer You would only owe it for those 2 days. So, for a 30 day month, you would owe $46.67 for those 2 days. However, if you paid 3 times a month sometimes, you may have overpaid. I would check with support enforcement if paying through the state to make sure.
