Child support is based on more than just one party's income. For example it will vary depending on the number of days each child will spend with each parent ("parenting time"), each parent’s income, the amount the parents pay for the support of other children, cost of insurance and childcare, and any factors the court deems relevant.

The court may also allow "add on expenses" which means that the court will divide such things as medical expenses, extra curricuular activities, and other things that go beyond food, clothing and housing. They may divide this 50/50 or may divide it based on income.

The state does provide a calculator where this information can be entered and an estimation will be provided:
