  • depends if its a week or a month. and we cant really tell you how much is enough. You didnt tell us what he made, just his job. Its also depends on if he makes more or less then you.

  • it's not based on what you make, it's based on what HE makes. It doesn't matter that you have 3 other kids by a different dead beat.

    If he's supposed to have insurance for them though and doesn't, contact the court about it. They will reevaluate the case and either he WILL get the insurance or he will pay more to you.

  • thanks there anon@17 but you're ignorance is showing.

    Yes I have been the recipient of child support and also the payer of it so I do know what I'm talking about. When I received, I was NOT asked how much I made, and when I paid it, I was NOT asked or told what he made, he wasn't even there.
