I am in the middle of a CS dispute for our 3 years old. The CS order I am receiving is a temporary order since we are in the middle of discovery and have no idea when it will be complete.
I was informed today, the other mother is suing the father for support for the first time after 8 years. Since I filed first, will I get more? Is the amount determined by who filed first or by who gets the final order first?
The first order of support gets deducted from the father's income and the remaining income is used to calculate dad's income for mom number two. This goes down the line to the last mother.
