Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Child support is set by statute and it is not a simple calculation in California under their "disomaster" system. Here is a calculator, but you are going to need more information than you are able to provide here to insert into that calculator to get approximate support payments required by the statutory guidelines.
