How much do you get/pay in CS?

If you don't mind sharing. If that's too personal of a question, I understand. The CS reassessment post made me wonder what people pay. My dh hasn't had his reassessed since they divorced 9 yrs ago. My dh pays $250 a month for one kid. We do feel like he should pay more and he plans to when he can. He also pays half of medical. He doesn't pay anything for ec's.

I receive a lot... Lol for one kid. I won't divulge it here. I also receive medical support for insurance premiums. I'm a lucky lady.

XH pays $250/month for 2 boys. He covers their medical (dental and vision as well) also however his insurance is the same contribution whether he's covering just his girls (with SM) or the boys too. He's supposed to cover half of any co- pay or other uncovered medical expenses but doesn't usually do that because I take the boys to the doctor.

I haven't had our CS reevaluated since it was set in '05 but I plan on it soon.

XH does contribute some (about 15%) for ODSs EC but that's it, nothing more. He does allow the boys to be involved in their ECs as long as I pay for them.

My ex husband is ordered to pay $325/month for two kids. He makes minimum wage (always has, probably always will). He is also ordered to pay 25% of medical and school expenses but never does because he "shouldn't have to" to quote him.

I receive 707/month for one kid.  He carries insurance, has to pay 60% of medical debt and EC's.

I receive nothing although he's ordered $257.00 a month. DH paid $1.000.00 monthly for two. Plus we helped out with school clothes and supplies and shoes and ECs when we could. Glad those days are over.
