What Do You Get?

So my daughter is 19m and child support was finally ordered! Since her father isn't working he was only ordered to pay $110 per month. Which I guess is fine.. it'll buy diapers and wipes, and an outfit for hera a month. But that's about it. (Which would be nice but I highly doubt ill be seeing any of it..!)

My friend says that seems awfully low, even if he isn't working. For other moms who's babys fathers aren't working, what were you ordered?

When my ex husband lost his job while we were married, he got half his unemployment check taken for child support to his first ex, it was about the same amount you are getting.  But when he went back to work, he had to pay back all the extra that was owed over those months PLUS the normal amount.

I know most states cap the amount of unemployment received per week; that being said, if he's only bringing in say $225/week pre-tax (est. $8.75/hr @ 40 hr/wk . . . unemployment = 1.25% of annual wage), unfortunately it's a fair amount given the circumstance.

He gives me between $300 and $450 a month for 2 kids....depending on his mood. That might pay half of daycare...so its not a lot. Especially because I pay a lot for our health insurance. but...I don't need it so I don't fight about it.
He has income...but its under the table. If I went through the state...I would get $268.

the lowest they can do in Ohio- without being incarcerated- is $50... but since he IS locked up, he pays about $2.44/month. without him being locked up, he didnt pay anything- even though it was court ordered. the C/O stated $300/month- the monthly, plus back support- but at that time, he was getting about $15/hr plus working over time, at the time.
