Child Support and superintendent surplus payments

I currently pay $500 per month in child. Is my surplus income based on $1800 or does it take effect at $2300?

When you calculate the surplus that is due it is based on your net income less any non-discreationary expenses. Child support is a non-discreationary expense, so as long as you provide receipts to your trustee you would subtract it out of your income when calculating what your cost of bankruptcy will be.
