How much child support do you get?

PLEASE BE NICE WITH YOUR ANSWERS
My husband pays close to 300 a week for two kids...one woman gets 80 a week and the other one gets 224 a week..i think that its a insane amount to pay when he has two other children at home and he isnt even bringing enough money to pay or rent and bills...

  • In Illinios it's 28% no matter how many kids you have so if he had 2 kids by 2 women each child would get 28% of the total income so ... if he makes 400 a week each child would get $80

  • anon :38 good to know...I was wondering if I was mistaken on my order. He just throws me a couple hundred $'s a yr to try and shut me up but never goes by the order...apparently he thinks he has one of those commericia kids..."For only $1.00/ day you can feed a child" lol cause I usually get $400/yr out of him.
