We don’t have excessive debts, just a car payment and two student loans. Do you put off saving and then “double up” the saving once the kids are grown? The only rare instance is when the new spouse is independently wealthy and the non-custodial parent is living a lavish life.
I’m able to put some of my check away into our retirement… Does he have to put his financial planning on hold for the next 13 years? But for everyday working people, the new spouse’s income is untouchable. His son was living with us and the mother was getting child support, good stamps,husband had been fighting in court for two years now.
We have his 3 kids every Tuesday until Wednesday morning (he picks them up from school on Tuesdays and they stay the night and he brings them to school Wednesday morning) we also have them every weekend until Monday morning which again he drops them off to school. The second mother is so greedy she’s taking him back for more child support. The second mom has a brand new infinity and lives in a nice house.
He is paying 30% child support plus all their health insurance needs. We can barely afford essential items and live paycheck to paycheck. He pays their benefits and pays both moms 0-700 a month in child support. We can barely afford our mortgage on a mobile home which is fairly new (2014 model).
I don’t know if we will ever get that money back but supposedly the attorney general office has a levy on our tax returns and we’re trying to see about credit owed to us or how they are going to figure out this whole mess! Can anyone help me understand what’s going to happen or has anyone been through something similar?
She lives 9 hours away so we get the children on long breaks, summers, etc. Two whole pay checks plus part of another go straight to her!My ex husband’s wife insisted he file a modification to have support reduced and it actually INCREASED an extra 5 per week.My kids are thanking her for that from the shoe store because they can finally get more than one pair of shoes per year!!!they really don’t know what the hell they are talking about. A year after the 3rd was born he found out it wasn’t his. One doesn’t work and her husband works three jobs to afford her spoiled brat lifestyle.Moving forward……we are married with 1 child of our own now. The other has a masters degree as a teacher making ,000-70,000 a year and works a waitress job on the weekends making more money.That made me so fired up because I couldn’t even believe a woman would ask for someone else’s money who’s not biologically related to their child.
