I am involved in an ugly custody battle with my ex. I currently have two kids and am a SAHM. My SO supports both children untill the court order's my ex to pay child support. I do work one night a week to contribute an extra $600 a month to our income, but that is all my overworked SO wants to handle. So...my ex's lawyer is demanding that I get a job ?! I am guessing so he does not have to pay as much cild support. Can she do that? do you think she is justified? does this question even make sense?Answer Question

I've never heard of that either, at least not in Michigan. His child support should be based on HIS income not yours.

He should have to pay his share of what the court orders whether or not you work. I'm with Anon :54 your income shouldn't effect HIS child support. Although if you're having trouble making ends meet, and your SO has to work to support your kids maybe you should get a better job?
