What about health insurance? Who pays for that ?

The bottom line is if you want the CS adjusted go to court. The situation exists, if it is not fair, start doing what it takes to get it fixed. No one wants your child to suffer, or your ex to get over. You have a part in this. Hopefully with the gift your parents are giving you, you are able to get a start on this new life. But you are in control of you.

well smart guy you give me $800.00 per month to have someone watch my son ,and i'll go to work tomorrow. i assume your a guy. if you think it's easy to raise a child alone, it isn't any man would rather go to work then stay home and take care of a child. when their work ends their day is over, not so for a mother..think a little before you talk

grtdad, what i give my son has nothing to do with the child support my ex has to give his son. even if i went to work right now that does not change a thing. i believe a man that does not step up to the plate to take care of his son is not a man in any sense of the word, and never will be. he did more for his mother then he did for me and my son

Oh God...someone kill me now because I'm about to defend Gr8dad.

Let me put this into perspective for you, Cherokee, gr8dad is raising ALL of his kids ON HIS OWN and he's TAKING CARE OF HIS PARENTS. So, maybe you need to sit the fVck down and shut up and think before YOU speak.

That said, YES, your ex should be paying more in child support based upon what he's making. So, file with Child Support Enforcement to review the Child Support.

However, YOU should be working as well. It sucks to have to juggle as a single working parent. It sucks to have to find childcare. It sucks to be tired. It's a part of the job. Go to your local welfare office and apply for childcare assistance. Then start applying for jobs. Or get a job in the evenings while your parents work. Or get a job at a daycare where you'll get reduced daycare for your child. There are ALL KINDS of options. Single PARENTS do it every day.

I am CUSTODIAL... [Re: cherokee]

...father of THREE children that has SOLE custody and is ordered $200 a month TOTAL in child support, which I RARELY recieve. I work a full time job, and I attend school full time in the evenings, just recently earning my Associates degree. I also care for my elderly disabled parents.

So you can take your BOO HOO crap and stick it sideways up your ASS. There are reduced rate and FREE daycare for single parents, you were TOLD that. But that would require you to get up off your lazy ASS and DO something.

Why give a "senior" discount, they have had plenty of time to raise the money...

It's quite painful, actually...I might have to call in sick tomorrow because of it.

Wait...did I get all my commas right that time?

I wonder if CS was lowered so that Dad could afford to pay for tickets to get the child to him since he is military?

I also wonder if her ex is enlisted or Officer. If he gets $40,000 a year is that with the extras or without. I would gather he is a lower enlisted and with the extras he gets $40,000 a year. If you take a lower enlisted, an E-3 with 2 years basic pay and take 17% it is about $300 a month which is about what she is getting.

Actually, not really, the ellipsis should REALLY be a comma...
