  • It depends on their income, your income, daycare expenses, health insurance expenses, other children, etc. There are forms online, but basically it just comes down to a judges decision - who can increase or decrease the amount suggested by the forms.

  • You should call family services or whatver you have in the states. They will get you the maximum amount, which is what you deserve because your ex sounds like a deadbeat.
