I am self employed. My yearly adjusted gross income last year was 31369.00 which I expect to be the same this year. I have two children. The son (15) lives with me and the daughter (12) lives with her mother. Now she is asking my son's residential custody as well. If I agree to give her both children's custody how much should I pay her as child support every month?
Response 1: The amount you would pay would depend on your State's Child Support Guidelines and based on your income (income after deduction of business expenses) and the mother's income from the financial Statements filed by both parties with the Court. So, I cannot answer this question within the confines of this forum.
Do these facts make any difference in paying child support? 1- I am married now and have a child (3month old). 2- I paid around 6000.00 of federal and state taxes last year. 3- My ex doesn't work. 4- I am paying her 547.00 a month as child support for my daughter. 5- I have around 48000.00 of credit card debts.

Response 2: The facts that you have another household would be relevant in the amount that the Court would order you to pay.
I am sorry, but I cannot give you the exact or approximate figure within the confines of this forum. So, I will opt out and give another Attorney the opportunity to further assist you.
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

We cannot properly calculate support for customers on this site, but we can provide you the links to the support calculators and statutory child support tables if that would be sufficient to answer your question (more than just tax return income is needed and you should not be putting that much information onto this site is the reason).
Thank you for your reply.
