Typically, if you instigated formal custody (and thus, formal support), you'd pay:
-a percentage of your monthly income, see here for an estimate:
for the child
-50% of anything not
covered by insurance in medical costs
...and that is it. It is up to you to decide whether or not formal custody/support is better than what you have now.
