Typically, in any divorce situation upon remarriage, alimony or spousal support stops. However, child support has nothing to do with the financial status of the new spouse. It has all to do with the financial status, the employment or the monies available, or the income of the other spouse. No, child support does not stop, but spousal support would indeed come to an end.
