Hi, thank you for your question. Yes, you are still obligated and your child maintenance liability is not impacted by her cohabiting or having another child. It is your legal obligation to your child and this will chnage if your gross income change or if you have any children in your care.If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating. I will not be credited for answering your question without a positive rating. Thank you
