If you and the father end up having joint physical custody, then the court will calculate 18% of your gross monthly income vs. 18% of his gross monthly income. If 18% of his example, for example turns out to be $550 and 18% of yours is $350, then he would pay the difference or $200.00. There are a few other twists, but that is the basic explanation.
