I have two children from a woman whom I never married. I am married now (to someone else). I would like to know if child support is based solely on my income or the total combined incomes of my wife and I? I also would like to know if I become unemployed, will my wife be responsible for making child support payments?

Your income alone, even if you become unemployed (unless you purposefully become unemployed to live off your wife).
support is based on your income.
