My ex-husband is in the Marine Corps and when child support was ordered he was a rank lower and this was 2 years ago. He was ordered to pay $736 for 2 kids. He also was to get them 80 days out of the year. He does not live close and got them less than 24 days a year. Come October he will be restationed to SC, and will not get them as much. I bring home less than $250 a week, and his rank is a E-7 with being in a few months shy of 12 years. We were married for 9 years and I did not ask for retirement or allimony, just to take care of his kids. Your help would be greatly appreciated on seeing if my children's child support has increased. Thank you
Child support is determined by looking at both your income and his. If his income has increased and yours has stayed the same or decreased, you may be entitled to more child support.
