I know they have many "toys" like cars, trucks and ATVs......

This is the lowest amount I have EVER heard of!!!!

I get chuckled at when I tell people this amount!!!!

Is your state one that counts the other spouses income? If not thats why its so low. But that is a ridiculous amount. Does he pay?

So he doesn't work? That seems pretty strange if you're the custodial parent and he can not work because he doesn't have to; I'd think the courts would tell him there's some sort of minimal amount he needs to pay. 

However, it depends on your income also and if you share custody...

 That is really low. As for the chuckling, I totally understand because when my sons dad was in prison his child support amount was lowered to $3 a month! I was like really what is the point?
