My husband made a mistake, and he is 1 1/2 years old now. They just did Child support in court and that judge ordered him to pay 720 dollars. My husband is in the army and the only one that works. We have 3 kids. We can't afford this and I am not about to start working so he can pay child support. This is to much.Is there any way I can find out if this is correct? Are there online resources I can look up. I asked my husband to go somewhere and find out if that can happen this way . The first time my hubby went to court with the mom, but 2. time he couldn't (we live several states apart now) and the mom went there by herself. Even though she claims she did tell him it's to much and blah blah , I don't trust her. And my husband don't do anything. He says He spoke to Legal before the court dates and they said they can't do anything. My friend tells me it's to much , it should be way less, but I can't do anything. I want to have a proof to present to my husband, otherwise he just don't listen to me. Any help would be highly appreciated. ThanksAnswer Question

How horrible to refer to an innocent child who didn't ask to be part of your husband's infidelity a "mistake". Your anger is misdirected.
There are minimums for child support in each state. It's not a "pay what you can afford" scenario. You can check an online support calculator but you'll need to factor in any income the mother receives and any arrearages your husband has for support. Also, courts don't just arbitrarily come up with a number for support. It's a formula that is not up for negotiation. The good news is that if you DO have to go to work to afford his child support, they do not include your income when factoring what he pays.
