Quoting Irish Mammy*J,R&A*:" How much child support do you get and how many children is it for?"


I am in Australia, So it probably differs, I get about $50 a month for my eldest 2, Dependant on what their Dads have that month (If they are working or collecting unemploymeny) And for my younger two i get $900-$1500 a month depending on their Dad, He makes about $87k a year, But thats before bonuses and extra's, Which get tallied into the monthly amount when Child Support get the info, One month i got almost $2k because he received a large bonus.
For my newbie who's still baking, I'm not sure i will get anything, BD isn't signing the Birth Cert, So i'm not sure how that works.

I'm getting $320 plus $80 in back support. He makes a shit load more money than the stupid people calculated so I have a court date that should raise it to about $600 a month. If I was paying child care, then it would be half of that as well. He always tells me I'm "stealing" money from him. WHAT A PEICE OF SHIT! The damn electric company wouldn't let me take my name off the old address because we weren't "tech" married so each month I get a lovely $300 bill and so now it is at $1000. :shock: And OF COURSE I have to pay it otherwise mine gets shut off... he hasn't paid me the $800 deposit I lost in letting him keep the apartment either... I HOPE HE LOSES A LIMB...or maybe just the one he doesn't know how to keep to himself !! I HATE HIM!!

I get $625 a month for DD. That was based off of when I lived in California though. It was based on completely different circumstances too. I had a better paying job and he's gotten a few raises since then too. I so my best to live below my means though so there was no need to raise it and he's seen no need to lower it even though he's remarried and has another child.

I get $61 a week for one kid, her dad gets unemployment at the moment.
It's not much but it's enough to pay for the things my child needs :)
