See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Since everyone on here has an opinion about everything, I have worked on a few of my own. So I am going to offer my knowledge to you, and hopefully avoid some confusion and embarassments.
Keep in mind, that the following apply as long as the child(ren) are well cared for-fed and clothed. PLEASE DO NOT PROCEED TO TELL ME HOW A CP YOU KNOW IS A HORRIBLE PARENT AND DOES NOT DESERVE CS. It is for the kids, remember?
Please, no bashing. I picked this up from another current post, and there was some very nasty exchange going on between the OP and a few other posters. It is totally uncalled for and immature.
I am adding a perfect example of my post, from the comments below:
My children were both grown and out of the house before I ever received any cs from my ex. It was a whole 50.00 a month. Give me a break. That didn't even pay for their lunches for a month. Oh I have two children. And back support is mine not to be spent on my grown children I've already raised them and paid for it all by myself. So that little 50. A month I get now is mine and if anyone thinks any different they can kiss my ass. Now I will say I usually spend it on my grandchildren but its still mine to spend as I see fit.
Current support: suppliments the expenses of having the child live with you as well as their basic needs.
Back support: since custodial parent paid for said expenses without the aid of the child's other parent, the back support can be spent as the custodial parent sees fit.
LOVE THY NEIGHBOR.
