    Question How Much Child Support Should Be Paid

    My question involves a marriage in the state of:WI
    Long and short, married 14 yrs, 4 kids ages 13, 12, 12, 10. He moved out July 5, filed divorce papers thru his lawyer Aug 5. How long before I'm served?
    So far we've agreed on 1 week with him, 1 week with me as far as the kids. As far as support, he agreed to pay me $100 a week for support of the kids. Is this a reasonable amount?
    I called the landlord to have a new lease done, as he's not been here in over a month.
    How long does it generally take for a divorce if both parties agree on things?

    I'm sure that I'll have more questions...but for now any answers would be great.

    What's reasonable will depend on several factors - but at first glance, $400/month for FOUR children seems to be very low.

    Very low indeed.

    WI uses a percentage of the NCP's income - so go here and see what it says.

    With regards to being served, it could take another week or so. But you can possibly check online if your county has the information available.

    So does that basically mean that even if we agree on that amt that the state would decide what amt he actually pays?

    Oh, no, that's not what I meant.

    If you AGREE to that amount and file a stipulation with the court the judge will most likely sign off on the agreement (unless s/he finds the amounts far too low).

    You asked if it was reasonable - I'm just going by the State guidelines
