  • That totally varies by income, there really isn't an average.. My nieces mom pays my mom 300.00 a mth and makes very little, my neighbor gets 800 a mth for her son and his dad makes decent money. My EX paid 1,200 a mth he made ok money judge was an ass..lol So it varies alot!

  • It depend on how much the parent is making. They calculate it by the income.

  • We scored big on child support. My son's dad make pretty good money. Also it depend on how many other kids he may have who collect child support. The judge wants to be fair and make sure all kids get the same, no less. This is my son's dad only kid, so my son is getting pretty good money from him.

  • It does depend on there income, My dd dad was told to pay $170 when mydd was two, not much I know. But he hasn't payed a dime, shes ten now. My ss mom does pay partial payments, but also was told to pat $270 a month, but also she only pays sometime. and never all what she is suppose to.
