    Default Child Support question

    Hi,

    I am trying to (roughly) estimate how much the Child Support that we currently pay will be reduced if/when we have another baby. My husband has a daughter who is only with us part time. Last time we had our own baby our CS for her went down, but I can't remember by how much. Currently DH pays about $400 per month.

    I know every situation is different but I would love to hear from anyone who might have an idea... Is it only a few dollars, or does it reduce quite a bit?

    TIA. J

    My DD's father had a baby and from memory it affected CS by *roughly* $40 per month, give or take, and at that time he was paying about $490 per month. All I know is that it ended up as $461 pcm, can't recall what the original figure was.
