How is Child Support Figured?

“How will child support be figured in NC for our 1yr old child once divorce is settled, if soon to be ex-husband has 2 other children (ages 3 yrs and 6 yrs) out of wedlock with 2 other women… Is it based on who filed for child support first or eldest child gets more or does marriage vs. out of wedlock have any changes?”

None of these things that you have mentioned are typically considered factors. Child support is primarily calculated based on the income of each parent, the number of children being supported, and the amount of time that the child is with each parent.
