My dh and I are increasing our time with his kids from 20% to 35%. We wanted 50% but bm wouldn't agree to that. She also wouldn't agree to lowering the cs saying she couldn't afford it (she doesn't work even though both kids are in school fulltime). I know we could go to court, but my dh doesn't want to b/c it is expensive and time consuming. When I brought up that it was ridiculous that we would continue paying the same amount when we were increasing the time, he said the most important thing to him was having the kids more. While this is a nice sentiment, we could really use the extra money. On top of it, bm has a ton of inheritance money and could GET A JOB....and yes ladies, I work. I don't want to make it seem to dh that all I care about is money, but we shouldn't have to just suck it up because he loves his kids...right?
