If the child support was based off your current incomes, and there no other factors (such as medical insurance or day care), the father would pay somewhere around $390 per month, based on the Oklahoma child support guidelines.
You can see the Oklahoma DHS calculator here to fine tune: http://www.okdhs.org/onlineservices/cscalc/ (note: there is no mechanism for 1 child with each parent full time, so the calculator would require you to put both child in and split the time 183/182 days).
That said, your income will probably be based on your actual earning potential, not your unemployment. Assuming that your income will go back to its normal level, it would be a little lower, around $330 (again, assuming no variables). But if you divorced now, a temporary order could be issued while the divorce is pending, and modified later when you know your income.
I understand what you're saying, however, I'm no longer making 20,000 right now.
I want no more or less than my children deserve and I just need to know that it's fair across the board. Thank you for your time, I appreciate it.
Of course, good luck. Keep in mind that you should use the calculator to enter the values for health insurance and other offsets.
Please do not forget to rate my answer favorably so that I may receive credit for my time. Many thanks.
