Do you get court ordered child support/have an order for it?

Out of curiosity how many women here have a court order for child support? If you do how much it is for? Do you actually get it?

  • Yes I have a court order to receive child support, but I only get it when he works, or can draw unemployment... He's always behind, so I don't count on it as an income because it's not steady.. My ex said we're "rich" so it's not a big deal.. Not sure how he would have any idea about our financial situation, we don't drive new cars, both are paid for, we live in a modest style home, that we have a mortgage on, and we don't buy junk ever, and our boys know that... Oh well...

  • I have a court order for my 11 year old. It's only $65/biweekly. I rarely get it. Sometimes if I'm lucky around Tax Refund time, I get between 500-2000 but I haven't got anything this year yet.

  • Yea i also receive it court ordered by the state and when he works and when they can find where he is working he pays. He is alloted to pay $722.00 month for 2 kids. The judge got tired of him coming in for non pay and finally stuck it to him. He didn't pay for the first 7 yr of my daughters life! He is 15,000 behind so judge ordered to pay more to pay off arrears and he has been paying regular for about 5 months now. With arrears on he pays $581.00 every two weeks!

  • My ex hasn't filed taxes so we have to make sure our accountant checks a certain box on our return or they will try to come after us for what he owes... They did it once, they will not do that again.. He'll probably go to jail for tax evasion before being behind on child support.

  • I would ask for an increase! You can do it through your local office or by sending in a letter stating what you want and why.
