Dante,Thank you for your follow-up. It is most unfortunate that quite a few custodial parents think that way, when they may not be providing for the child on their own, or not in any significant manner. If you go to this link below, you can use their site to estimate obligations. I assumed that the mother did not have any income, and that she had full custody, which all increase your potential support. Based on their estimate, your monthly obligation appears to be $428 but if she is working or you share custody, that amount can decrease. You can use the form yourself to see what your obligation may be otherwise"http://www.dhr.state.md.us/CSOCGuide/App/worksheetA.doHope that helps and please let me know if I can assist you in any other way.
