  • Neither the husband nor the wife has any say in what he pays (unless they can mutually agree on an amt, which I doubt). There is a formula that the court uses to calculate what will be paid. If you google your state and "child support guidelines" it should come up and she can get a much better idea of how much to expect.

  • They can not take more then 55% of his income. So based on what he makes and his hours will depend on what she will get. and also you have to figure if the judge will order daycare cost and medical costs in and that can change the amount as well. if you go onto your local dhs website there is a child support calculation app on there and you can usually get a round about estimate off that. ( i used to work for child support enforcement.)

  • They base it on his income but cannot take more than a certain percent. Your local welfare department website should have a table online you can figure it out on.

  • an E6 with 12 years makes $3336 a month. (you can look it up its on the Internet) With all of his benefits he might get 5200, but child support can only be taken out of his base pay. and MOST of the time, with one child you can expect to get 25% of his pay. And she shouldn't get any long term spousal support, she hasn't been married long enough. And as long as he stays active duty, the kids will be able to stay on tri-care so he wont have to pay for medical.
