Hi out there everybody, my name is Clarissa and I am somewhat new to this group. I am currently in the beginning stages of a divorce and so far things are looking ugly. So I ask you all, whats reasonable? My soon to be ex had all sorts of stipulations and demands in order to "allow me" to have the divorce in the first place. One of those demands was that he pay two hundred dollars a month in child support and claim one of our girls at income tax time every year. Is that reasonable? Then, he changes his mind and says how about instead of paying monthly child support he just "allow me" to claim both the girls every year and have that be my child support.
My response was that I did not agree with that. That him claiming one of the girls every year was his way of getting paid back all the money he put into child support and that not paying a monthly amount and letting me claim them both was the government and my job pay his child support for him. Now I am a money hungry B**** because I wont agree to let him get away with paying nothing to help support his kids? I do not think I am, but I need some impartial opinions.
