I have joint custody 50/50 with my ex. In the state of Colorado, our judicial system believes regardless of custody, someone must pay child support. I make a decent wage at my job I have been at for 9 years. My ex also makes a decent wage but because he is self-employed, he makes it look like he makes nothing.
So, though still bitter from the ruling, I am paying him child support. I have always applauded those who pay and pay faithfully. I have never looked at it as men only though it seems to have always been the norm in America.
How many of you ladies also pay your ex child support?

I am sorry to hear that Colorado has such ridiculous laws regarding child support. If there is joint custody the only thing that makes sense to me is possibly splitting who is responsible for relevant expenses such as health insurance, school trips, or tuition, etc. Neither party should be ordered to pay the other party. Is there anyway you could prompt the court to audit his business, if he is hiding assests/income because of potential child support he may be doing so for tax reasons as well........
