A: Oklahoma has specific child support tables that compute the accepted amount of child support according to relevant variables (i.e., number of children, each parent's income, etc.) The issue is if the calculation according to law would require you to pay more and your ex pushes the issue, you'll be paying more. It would be best to contact a family lawyer, tell the lawyer all of the applicable variables and determine what the proper amount is. Only then can you know how close $450 every 2 weeks is to what is considered proper under child support laws.
