Hello,

My wife and I are going into a100% amicable, no-fault divorce with 50/50 shared custody of our two daughters. They are ages 11 and 3. I am trying to figure out how much I will have to pay since I make more money.

My wife just started school and has taken out loans. I am unsure of their size, but think they are pretty unsubstantial and do not cover living expenses. My wife makes around 700 a month from a part time job and another 300 a month through selling clothes on eBay. I make around 3,000 a month. She is not actually wanting any of my money and we are just trying to move on from this dark times. It is written in our paperwork that she does not want any money. However, I have had many tell me that I will end up paying anyways. I am offering to pay for all of the heathcare costs, school costs and other things such as piano lessons.

How can I calculate this?

Thank you

You should use www.efamilytools.com to calculate support.  You can email their support staff and they can help you check your numbers.  I think in your case there would probably be very little support paid.  It's always up to the judge if he will order a zero support order.  There are ways to enter this on a worksheet so a judge is more likely to approve.
