Thank you for your question. Please permit me to at least provide you with a better estimate of your potential obligations.

If I may clarify, is the child located in Maryland or elsewhere? In what state did she file for support, if she filed at all? All states have different calculations, I just want to be sure I obtain the right numbers for you in this instance, thank you!

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"
