If there is no agreement between the parents on how to provide for the child, the issue of the payment of alimony is resolved through the court. A number of situations may have their own specifics, for example, if your ex-husband is disabled.
Try to negotiate with your husband about the amount of payments for the child. You can do without a trial if you draw up and sign the agreement yourself. According to it, payments for one child to the parent-primary guardian must be at least 25% of earnings and other income, for two children - at least 33%, for three or more - at least 50%.
If it is not possible to come to an agreement, file an appropriate claim with the district court at the place of residence of your spouse. You must attach copies of the children's birth certificates, marriage and divorce certificates, as well as other documents, if you deem necessary, to the claim. You can also send an application to determine the child's place of residence to the same court, if this has not been done earlier.
Find out what you can count on if your husband is disabled. Alimony can be levied on most income, including various types of pensions. If this is the spouse's only income, then you will receive no more than 25% of its size (with one common child). In the case when the husband can work and is employed, you can also apply for the calculation of alimony from his earnings. If the spouse owns his own business with a floating income or his job is associated with irregular cash receipts, the court may order alimony not as a percentage of his income, but in a fixed form, taking into account your own income and other obligations of the husband. In this case, the court may take into account his additional expenses as a disabled person, for example, for medicines and means for rehabilitation, which will reduce the amount of alimony.
