Here's a thought I've had once or twice about child support. Why do they ever modify child support? I think the amount of CS should stay the same from the moment it is determined. Why should a CP benefit from the NCP's success? So the NCP works his a$$ off to get a promotion and a raise, just to hand over a large chunk of it to his ex? It doesn't make sense to me (although I'm pretty sure I know what your arguments will be...lol). I get it, I understand the arguments, I just think it's wrong.
I have no problem with Dh paying child support, if I did, I wouldn't have married him :) I wrote this in hopes of starting a new conversation, and it worked! :)
We actually had the opportunity at one point to lower CS and decided against it. Bm went to work for minimum wage after her deadbeat baby Daddy #2 left her a month before their first child was born. (they are now married...ugh) He left for 6 months and we knew that Bm needed that money to help with her second child. If we went back and got child support lowered, it would just take away from Sd. So Dh continued paying more child support than he technically had to and I started doing all the transportation. (even though our first child had been born just 6 months prior to Bm's new baby.
Those 6 months were actually the best for our situation, everything went to hell in a handbasket when Bm's now husband came back.
