It won't automatically go up. You'd have to take it back to court in order to get more.

When the minimum wage goes up to $9 an hour will child support also go up if the father is making $7.25 as his minimum wage now?
I love how $ is all that's on women's minds. Go ahead and say the kids need blah blah blah but we all know when you get that check you go get your hair did or have a night out at the bars. They should make the person, mother or father, that pays child support spend the money directly on the child. If his pay went down you'd be on asking the same crap terrified your spending money would be going down.
hmm

I don't see how any could afford child support only making minimum wage.

not all moms are like that. That's saying that ALL men are dogs. I personally take care of my own kids and spend their support on Bills and their needs.

and do you spend at least 1/4 per child of your income on your kids?(1/2 of my gross income is child support.)

You should pay that for you kids ... Half all the bills of the house they live in is shelter plus they need clothes and food so before you think all your child support doesnt go to the child maybe you should consider that
just saying as well

Receipts should be provided for sure. No chance it takes 600 a month to take care if a kid. And don't try to say oh 1/3 of the rent is theirs. Utilities I understand because extra water and electricity but the woman is gonna live in that place whether its her or her and her two kids. It really is absurd. Child support makes it to where the dads have to stay with crazy chicks or move back in with mom and dad because they can't afford anything else. Like the guy above said 1/2 of his gross income goes to child support. No chance that's even close to what is spent.

Or men could learn to wrap it up and stop having babies with random chicks. Maybe i dont know get to know a woman and find somebody worth starting a family with.
Duh

Here's an idea. Stop having kids you can't afford. It's not everyone else's job to support your children. If you do have to pay child support that's your responsibility.

Isn't your child support also based on income? I mean when you break it down 150 a week a much when u consider food and clothes alone and depending on the age of the kid the might need certain things too like a baby has to have diapers and formula every week
ohhh

Man up! You have kids! Half of you on here b*tchin probably never even see your kids very much. Since my mom left my dad I have only seen him a handful of times bc he doesn't care about us. He didn't when we lived with him so why would he now!

Women are the ones that worry about every little detail of their childrens lives. How am I going to afford to feed them, cloth them, keep this roof over their head, pay for the dentist or doctor even when they aren't sick and just need a check up, give them money for a field trip, pay for dance classes/karate that they really want? These are the things that are forever going through a moms mind. And when you make minimum wage and ARE'T getting child support money is all you can think about because it's what keeps your kids off the street.

Yes it is based on income, there is a minimum amount even if you are unemployed.

Half if his gross income is including taxes, 410K's, and anything else deducted from his check. How are you gonna include what the government takes in taxes n blame it in the kids. Most taxes take about 21% from a single and one W4. So tell us how much child support is out of net pay (the amount that the check is actually written for)........
Duh

If you are making minimum wage you are probably paying about $90 every two weeks. That's $45 a week. You can make that up at the plasma center.

What about the things that you deadbeats aren't considering? What if your child is in an accident or gets sick? The extra money can be used for that. If they are perfectly healthy and never have an accident there are still things kids need as they get older - a car, school and extra curricular trips, money for prom, college, weddings. If you are not willing to help support your child now or only want to pay the BARE MINIMUM there is NO WAY you would pony up the dough for the "big ticket" items later in life. You had a part in creating this life - you should be responsible for making certain this person who is 1/2 you is healthy, happy, and well taken care of regardless of what it costs you -
