How much child support should my daughter be receiving and

Customer Question

How much child support should my daughter be receiving for she and her 7 year old daughter ? They have to live with us because her wages as a barber will not support she and her little one. Right now, she receives only $ 560.00 a month, as her ex husband is making between 50 to 70,000. dollars a year. How will she ever be able to get a place for she and her daughter and pay for living expenses, with his pathetic monthly payment ? What is the correct amount that he should be paying her ? Her brother is paying over 2200.00 a month for 2 children to his ex wife .

I believe she should be getting around $1200+ per month.

Did the dissolution judgment specify child support and custody?

Which Court filed the dissolution judgment?

Does your daughter have an attorney?

I believe she should be getting around $1200+ per month, but that is a very rough guess because I don't have the information needed to calculate it. The formula is rather complicated, see

You can try to calculate it using
