My friend is a mom to 2 and a step mom 2. She is a PA (physician's assistant) and her DH owned a small business until recently but it went under and so now he is looking for a job. She told him that until he gets another job, he needs to let his ex know that he will only be paying child support based on the unemployment checks he will be getting, not the over $700 a month he was paying. It is court ordered but she said all he has to do is file for a modification since he isn't making the money he was. He said "well it's not fair to her, she still has to support the kids" and my friend said "well yeah, but I still have to support my kids, why should I have to pay the child support?" I think they both have good points but to me, my friend's makes the most sense, why should the money she makes go to paying her DH's child support? She has kids to support too and now she is supporting the whole household one just her income.
