I have been receiving CS for 15 yrs. my ex continued paying for 2 kids (same amount) after our oldest turned 18. He did get behind awhile back (for about 1 yr.) I thought he was going to keep paying after the youngest turned 18. Well I usually receive a check every 2 weeks our youngest turned 18 this past May. 3 wks later I text him and asked him if he mailed out a check for me bc I hadn't received anything...he text back and said no I am done with CS then he decides to call me to talk about this and tells me he has talked to his lawyer and he said he could stop paying especially now that the last child is 18. (the lawyer calculated everything and said actually you have overpaid but if you want to continue to pay its up to you, once the youngest turns 18 you can stop) I'm like well you know (Jennifer20) will be needing new tires and a new AC and (Michael18) will be needing tires as well.
I guess I did not know how to handle the news (no more CS) so I just sort of threw that in, he was like well if I can help them I will they have never done without. besides its time for them to stand on their own 2 feet they are adults now but if they need something I'm there. (they got low paying jobs but hey it's a start)
Venting...what else can I do or say :/
