Re: What is child support for?

>>>>>If I'm paying Child Support to you the amount should be based upon what it costs to raise that child PERIOD.

That's my point of this thread. WHY should it be? If it wasn't during marriage (I mean if the child was having more spent on them than just what it cost for necessities) why should that change?

>>>>>Fact is, if I make a million dollars a year and CS is based on that, YOU will be living off of my CS.

Who's fact? If the CP intends to use it for themself, then yes. However, if it is put towards the child, then no.

>>>>>I believe CS needs to be based on what the cost to raise the child is based on the standard of living at the time of the divorce.

Ahhh, but who determines what it takes to raise them? That's the problem. Some say just basics...regardless of SOL.

>>>>>Any increases in salary down the road should not be factored in. The NCP can choose how best to allow the child to benefit from THEIR hard work.

And would those increases have been factored during the marriage? If it's just an effort to "make the CP pay" that denies the child the benefits over their childhood, when they would've received those benefits prior...why should it be acceptable behavior?

>>>>>Astronomical CS lines the pockets of the CP only.

Not everyone pays "astronimical CS", but even when some do, it does not "always" line the pockets of the CP. It depends on the CP's moral character.

>>>>>Sure the child will benefit from it, but it's not the CP's place to help the child benefit from the NCP's income, it's the NCP's place IF THEY CHOOSE TO.

And there's the point of the discussion. Some NCPs will choose NOT to solely based on their hatred of the CP and the child is already going through emotional trauma. Why should either parent be able to heap their hatred of each other onto the child?
