Child support rule defining adjusted annual income as “the parent’s total income from all sources minus child support for children from prior relationships living with the parent” did not entitle biological father to deduction, when calculating his child support obligation for one out-of-wedlock child, for support he provided to later born child of another woman with whom he had long-term relationship and with whom he was cohabiting; father’s support obligation for first child arose on date of its birth, and date of inception of prior relationship was immaterial.
