How much child support should I get?

Calculating child support

When you file for child support ask for the guideline percentage; not a dollar amount. If the state says you are entitled to 17% of the income for one child and it comes out to $100 per pay, you want the order to read 17% not $100. By doing this you will get an increase each time your ex gets an increase and you will not have to go to Court for it.
