Based on the numbers you provided, the presumptive amount he would pay in child support would be approximately $1,725 per month (http://www.nyc.gov/html/hra/html/directory/child_support_calculator.shtml). You may also qualify for maintenance (i.e., alimony). It is in your interest to schedule a follow-up consultation with a NYC Divorce lawyer to fully review your situation.

As far as child support, the amount awarded generally for two children would be 25% of his income. However, as my colleagues mentioned, you may still qualify for spousal support (alimony).
If you are awarded spousal maintenance, the 25% will be on the post FICA income less the spousal maintenance figure.
