The noncustodial parent is divorcing again and will have another child support order. We live in another state and I am afraid that this second order will be enforced before mine.

State laws require how child support is to be shared when there is more than one order for child support. If the available income of the noncustodial parent is not enough for both orders, the amount of support sent for your children may be reduced, but you will receive a share of the support as determined by law. For orders enforced by wage withholding, states have a formula for sharing the available income among the support orders. Ask your caseworker for more information.
