  • It depends on your state. In Wisconsin, it is a set amount that is based on 17.5% for 1 child.

  • it depends on the state you live in... you can call your child support services and find out what the rate is...

  • You can probably find an online "child support calculator" that takes into account your income, his income, the number of children, etc.

    Try googling "Ohio child support calculator" and see what you come up with.
