!!!Get a second job? Child support. 

 I am going through a divorce and we are sharring placement of our two kids.  I make only $2.50 lee an hour than he does and I am going to need a second job to make it.  I am hoping that the courts give me some child support but he will fight that.  If I get a second job might i have to pay him support even though I need it to make it? He has his family in this area and they have money I come from low middle class family that really can not help too much. Please help!!!

The court will look at both incomes and decide what your support will be. I am assuming that you have physical custody of the kids. Even if there is joint custody whoever has physical custody will recieve support. You may be able to recieve alimony also.
There are websites that youcan figure out how much it might be. I am pretty sure it varies with what state you are in. The one for VA is on a social services website. You will just have to search for it.
Hope this helps.

child support is not optional.  yes, he will have to pay it.  typically, the mother gets physical custody of the kids and the father gets joint with visitation. meaning, kids live with you. he pays support.

here is some info that i hope helps:
