How much do YOU get in CS?

I have 50/50 custody

My ex makes about 2500 a month.

I could make about 10 an hr with my certificate, IF someone would hire me. With my hours, NO one will hire me

My kids go to school (one son) from 8:30-11:30 (I can't afford to put him in after care) and my oldest from 8:30-3:30. no one will hire me for those hours that I am available to work

Anywho.. I get a whopping $152 a month, for TWO kids.

Seems fair, right.. Everyone I run into (CS workers) always look at the amount with disgust...

I have two kids, same dad. My ex and I both work full time and make near the same amount. He has a previous child support order on 4 kids from his first wife. I get $376.

I get 380 for two kids. I'm considering taking him back to court to have it modified because his income has doubled since the original order was set.

Of course no one will hire you to work 3 hours a day. You'll have to look for someone to watch your kids other than daycare.

No cs here.
