Can the court use a new spouse's income to calculate child support?

It is often a concern to parties on both sides of a child support order whether a new spouse's income will effect a child support obligation. It is well settled that a new spouse, or any non-parent, is not responsible to support a child. Krokyn v. Krokym, 378 Mass. 206, 215 (1979). The more difficult situation is when, and to what extent, a new spouse's income should be considered by the court in calculating the payor's child support obligation.
