The non-custodial or non-principal parent is usually the one that will pay child support.  The amount of child support that the non-custodial parent will pay is determined by a number of factors including where you live, your income level, and the number of children for which you are paying child support.  If your children have added expenses including: daycare, medical expenses, private school or any other additional factors, the amount of child support you will be asked to pay can be raised above the average level.  If you are experiencing a significant change in your life such as a drop in income, you need to speak with an experienced attorney regarding modifications to child support.
