Bc DH is lowering his CS. Smh. I can understand it, but when DH started his support 7 years ago he was a 50k base and made more with commission. His support was set to $680 a month for their dd. Now he has a job making significantly less. His support takes right around half of his check now give or take a little. He literally brings home between $350-$500 every 2 weeks depending on his hours. We really can't live off that. I work but it's not enough to offset the support. Even if DH lived alone, he couldn't support himself off that.
She's was telling me "how am I supposed to support my girls now off $275 a month? I only get $500 in FS." (She has another dd whose deadbeat dad doesn't pay support). I'm not sure where she spends it all, she lives rent/utility free, no car, gets cash assistance, fs and state health for her and her other dd (sd is on dhs insurance). Her mom pays her cell. But it's not my concern. Sd is safe, roof over head, well cared for etc. that's all that matters.
I kindly told her that this was not my concern, she needed to speak to DH about this. She told me that her dd is more important than mine and his ds and we shouldn't lower support to care for him, she has her girls to think of and it wasn't her fault that DH had another child. She told me ds shouldn't even be mentioned as a dependent on his support change paperwork and my income should be taken into consideration. I told her again it wasn't my concern. She needs to speak with the CS office and DH. I got called several names. I finally heard sd in the background and told her firmly that I was not discussing this with her, she needs to speak to DH and especially not in front of sd. I also reminded her that she has my number for emergencies only, and this was not an Emergancy. And hung up.
I really wanted to go off on her. I'm rather proud I didn't.
Poor DH lol. It's gonna be weeks before he hears the end of this.
