  • It's really up to the state you live in. Recently a friends ex-husband was ordered to pay $300 a month and he had zero income.

  • It depends on the state. In my state, for 2 kids, it's 25% of gross income.

  • There are lots of deciding factors. The percentage varies from state to state, but it's also based on how many other children he has, plus things like your income & lifestyle and on and on...

  • It depends on the state. It also depends on if the mother of the child is working or not and if he has any kids without the other mother. There are a lot of factors that need to be considered. This site should help you figure it out.

  • As others have said, it depends on your state... they go by his yr to date gross ... they can also garnish his paychks to assure that you get what he is to pay... but you HAVE to contact your local FOC office (Friend of the Court) and find out what your children are entitled too...
