I'm going to receive 325 a month in c/s for my two kids.I called the c/s office because I thought it was a mistake.My ex dh pays 520 for his oldest dd.She told me it was that amount because he already has a open case,and they can only take a certain percentage of his check.and that often , times first cases get the most money.How is that fair?

That's the way it works. If you don't like it, don't procreate with a man that already has kids?

I find that to be pretty weird. Very unfair to the younger children, it's not their fault he has an older kid.

Yep, thats the way it works.  They can only take a % of what he has left after previous orders.  Same thing with me.  My ex's first ex gets more than me.  If his latest baby momma ever takes him for CS she will get hardly nothing because she will be 3rd in line.
