I have been living on one full time income providing for my son and I for quite some time now. At this point, child support has FINALLY been ordered.
Now, we all know very well that child support is not a RELIABLE income, because usually the guys being forced to pay are dead-beats who can't pull their heads out of their rears. There are ways for them to avoid paying the child support.
In my case, my full time income is enough for us. WITH the medical, food, and daycare support that I receive from county.
IF I accept my 400 dollars from child support, that means we get cut off of those assistances. This means that with a *possible* raise of income of $400, I am supposed to cover these added expenses: Daycare=400, Food=150, and Medical=250..... that means +400 and then -800 for the budget.
I have heard the word "unethical" thrown around for people in my shoes who don't want the child support.
Unethical? Or protective???

they can't count something you are not getting, you just have to make some phone calls and talk to your case worker. I don't see anything wrong with you not wanting child support, food, medical and everything else is ridiculously expensive and extra $400 is a needle in a haystack compared to cost of living, you got to do what you got to do and people can take there opinions and shove them. Good Luck
