$25 a week? WTF?

What if your kid's dad offered you only 25 dollars a week support? Would you accept that or take him to court? He is on unemployment because he is flat out sorry. He gets like $250 a week.

  • No. I was smart enough to marry the father of my children and knew he was man enough to never leave. Sounds like you have a good husband, he takes care of your daughter. Screw the bio-dad, he's just a sperm donor. Focus on your family and don't worry about the deadbeat.

  • I'd be happy with $25 a week, just knowing I was able to get something. But I'd go to court too, not to take everything from him, just so it's set.

  • A LOT of people are out of work and on unemployment right now. Take him to court if you feel it isn't enough.

  • take him to court, eventually he will get a job and if he doesnt and he files taxes as EIC then he will get a return and you will get paid out of his refund. Either way he will have a court order stating an amount he has to pay. When I turned 18 my father was miffed that I myself went to the state and asked them to garnish his paycheck to pay my mom the back child support he owed, Amazingly he came up with the money in 4 payements. Its in your best interest to have a court order with a set amount and its also in the best interest of your children this way you will have a running total of what he owes you, and just because they turn 18 doesnt mean back child support isnt owed.

  • just keep taking that.. then in a few years when he has a good job or making decent money.. you can get him for backed child support. ;)
