How can I estimate how much child support will be owed if my husband, who will owe for 3 children, is self-employed?

Does it go by net profit from the tax forms?

The way child support is determined in all states in this country is taking the net monthly income of each parent and then applying the county guidelines per child based upon the net monthly income per child in the county and state where the minors reside. Given your question, I suggest that you consult with a family law attorney for further assistance as to your inquiry.
