  • I get $50 a week for one kid, it gets added to the general budget.

  • I rarely ever get any and havent gotten a dime for atleat 10months, but who is counting right? When I have gotten money it just goes into my general fund. I buy her clothes, pay for sports, all medical,housing, any support i get is often bonus and unexpected. It allows me to be able to throw in a few extra fun days like movies or something. Mostly I just try to live on my budget and save it for christmas or a summer trip because I can never depend on the next check.
