While I agree this is how it is, this isn't how it should work.
Child Support for situations like this should be something around 5k/month PLUS 250k/year into an account that the child can access when they're 18.
additionally, it's about the standard of living that the child's mother has a right to, depending on the nature of her and the father's relationship. it is most definitely not about what the mother 'needs' to raise the children.
No, the mother doesn't have a right
to a new standard of living because she was a cheap one night stand.
Simply put, bitch is in it for the money.
The kids likely wont see much of it at all.
