Is there a connection between child support payments and spousal support payments?

0

There is no direct connection. These are two separate calculations, two separate payments and two separate obligations, and the quantum of child versus spousal support is often a point of strong negotiation between the parties. The Child Support Guidelines recognize that there may not be enough money available to pay spousal support once the child support is paid and the former spouse will then have to wait until the child support has ended to determine if the issue is worth raising.
