We're pregnant and going to talk to a lawyer to get child support lowered.
Well we just found out we are pregnant and in our state we can ask to have child support lowered and under the circumstances we are going to do just that.
We are going to wait until the first trimester is over before speaking with his lawyer but we are going to try to get it lowered.
I'm sure there will be some here who don't feel cs should be lowered but under these circumstances I think they should. We should not be supporting HER. While child support is supposed to help her with bills like PART of the house note and other bills we shouldn't be solely supporting her and the kids. The children are half hers and she should have to contribute financially to them as well, it shouldn't be solely up to us.
------edit to answer questions-------
The kids are 10 and 12 and are not special needs. They are normal children
She has a degree but choses not to work. She can work, nothing is stopping her.
We have the kids 50% of the time and he did talk to his lawyer about going for custody but we live in a state that is very mother friendly and the lawyer told him that there is a slim chance he would win custody of the kids.
Im well aware the judge may not lower child support but that will not stop us from consulting a lawyer and weighing our options.
