I'm seeing my lawyer next week, I'm just looking into some stuff to try to get approximate #s for the time being - budgeting, figuring out what I can afford in rent, etc.  

Stbx is military, we're not divorced yet, he's overseas currently, when he gets back he will be living over 2K miles away from us, so I'll still have the kids full time for at least another year when his contract is up.  I have NO idea how all this works... and I want to try to get full custody (he was very abusive)... so how does all that tie in to parenting percentages and all that stuff?  I'm so confused.   I'm sure I've left out info that would be needed in order to answer the question, so if I did, let me know and I'll update.

17% of the working  non custodial parents income for one child more for each child after that.I don't think they can legally take more that 25%.

Really?  I constantly hear guys bitching that they get half their pay taken.  Doesn't mean it's true, but that seems REALLY low.  We have 2 kids.

Figure out about how often he'll have the kids, 20%, 30%, etc, self-support allowance sounds like alimony.
