I have 50/50 custody of my daughter, her mother has one more over night to make her primary parent.. she makes more money then I do, Also lives at home with her mom, and has no major bills at all, except she pays 700 a month “for the best daycare in town” and I have 2 other kids that live with me full time and I’m the only person that pays for 100% of their livelihood (rent, food, clothes, etc). I even proved my income with tax papers as well as written proof from my boss at work! And I’m still ordered to pay her almost 500$ a month for one child?!? How is this right??
In order to evaluate your order, it would be necessary to know what information and arguments you presented to the judge, what information and arguments your ex presented to the judge, and what the judge said when he entered the order.
In most cases, the judge will run a child support worksheet before entering the order which would give you a pretty good indication of what information was used.

We would need to see the child support worksheet that determined the current obligation and the supporting financial documentation of both of you regarding, health insurance for your daughter, child care expenses, and both of your gross incomes. You should speak with an experienced family law attorney. Good luck to you!
A Family Law Attorney could review the financial circumstances of the child's month and your financial circumstances, and determine if there are grounds for review o the child support as ordered. You should consult with an attorney in that regard,
