Congrats! I am like you too. I strive to not ever count on CS so I'm not devastated when he decides to do something stupid and quit or get fired. But since he had his third kid he's been really good about working his ass off.

Wow Good job! I wish I didnt need my CS but i do.. And the sad thing about it is I make not even 100 dollars more a week than what i get in child support per week..

consider yourselves lucky girls...at least you get child support even if it is only every once in a while. i havn't seen a dime of child support and i filed when my son was 4 months old. he owes over 4000 now and no ones seems to be doing much about it. he lives in michigan and i live in ohio so hes just never showed up to court. ive been fighting them to do something about it and now i had to make my case interstate which they told me takes up to 9 months to even do...geez. he has another child in the county he lives who he pays child support for so im hoping since hes already got a case there they will be able to do it all quicker. its been a pain in my rear though more than anything.

Good for you. I try to always make it without CS cause I never when it is coming and this way when I do get some it is like a bonus for the kids.

 Congrats!! Ihaven't relied on child support in 13 years and I will NEVER rely on it, not a guaranteed income. Just because it's court ordered doesn't mean the sperm donor has to pay it.

Way to go! I am trying to prepare myself for no CS....my ex's unemployment runs out in a month.....it is scary! He is not at all trying to find a job either....kinda pisses me off.
