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? 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.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? The seconds wife’s income is counting towards what the judge sees as “his” income. Reply It’s hard my had kids with his ex wife….( We have two little girls together) his ex has custody and my is not behind in child support. They have taken our tax refund totaling ,000 so far and I’m not even sure what’s going on now since it’s still being disputed in court.Every time there’s a change in circumstance, (oldest takes piano lessons, youngest enrolls in ballet), we go back to court, pay more legal fees and ultimately, the CS order is increased. I don’t know how he’d survive financially if he wasn’t married.He knows the children are his financial responsibility too… He and his ex-wife both bring home about 00 per month.And the children are grown now (in there 20’s) and the mom does not share this with them.Why is it continued when children are grown and working with their kids and marriage Reply My husband has 3 kids from a previous relationship.Only, we’re only able to see about 00 /- of his money after witholdings and CS. but ultimately, he’d just pay out more and they payoff to us wouldn’t be worth the time away from home?
If you are indeed paying too much, the court will adjust the amount, but be careful.
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.
What kind of greedy monster would even dare ask a question like that???!!!
THAT should have been a red flag to you and if HE had any intelligence at all he would get away from YOU before you end up knocked up because it seems YOU are money hungry and simple minded. All of you who are complaining about child support should have either found spouses who didn’t already have a family and the ones who complain about paying and being broke should have worked your crap out and not broken up your child’s home.
To those wanting to claim your step child as dependents on tax returns, you had better be sure you have a court order stating you have permission, as well as file the appropriate forms signed by the custodial parent because that is federal law.
