  • As far as I understand, all CS is income based. Laws vary from state to state as well.

  • There is usually a set formula. The father completes paperwork on his income and expenses a does the mother. Years ago I assisted women filling out the forms. There wasn't a question of how many other children do you have. It did ask if you paid child suport for other children and how much. But many mothers had concerns the father was not reporting accurately or truthfully in all areas. That his proof of income was not right.

  • The first child to apply for support will get a higher rate because it is based on income and expenses. Once one child is getting support, that's an expense that has to be accounted for.
