Every time there’s a change in circumstance, (oldest takes piano lessons, youngest enrolls in ballet), we go back to court, pay more legal fees and ultimately, the CS order is increased. I don’t know how he’d survive financially if he wasn’t married.He knows the children are his financial responsibility too… He and his ex-wife both bring home about 00 per month.The real shame here is that these poor kids have to spend any amount of time with a step parent who resents their existence and begrudges them financial support. To those complaining about paying too much – get off your rear and file a modification petition.If you are indeed paying too much, the court will adjust the amount, but be careful.THAT should have been a red flag to you and if HE had any intelligence at all he would get away from YOU before you end up knocked up because it seems YOU are money hungry and simple minded. All of you who are complaining about child support should have either found spouses who didn’t already have a family and the ones who complain about paying and being broke should have worked your crap out and not broken up your child’s home.To those wanting to claim your step child as dependents on tax returns, you had better be sure you have a court order stating you have permission, as well as file the appropriate forms signed by the custodial parent because that is federal law. Maybe you’re experiencing something similar and/or have advice on how to improve their situation?
He is paying 30% child support plus all their health insurance needs. We can barely afford essential items and live paycheck to paycheck. He pays their benefits and pays both moms 0-700 a month in child support. We can barely afford our mortgage on a mobile home which is fairly new (2014 model).She then did not come back home one nite as she was with a male cheating on me, her money went into my savings account, that’s adds up to £160..If i draw it out the bank that’s in my name can she press any charges against me for doing so?? Asap many thanks kelly Reply Some individuals just be talking out the ass. Reply My husband has 3 kids from a previous relationship.Only, we’re only able to see about 00 /- of his money after witholdings and CS. but ultimately, he’d just pay out more and they payoff to us wouldn’t be worth the time away from home?I knew when I married him I’d be taking a financial hit, and I have. You can imagine the resentment I feel for working my butt off to pay for someone else’s kids. My husband and I both have good jobs with good benefits.
