Re: What is child support for?
      07/27/10 06:49 AM

I don't know, I don't feel that **I** have spent $1100/month on each of my kids and they have more than a couple of boxes and baskets of clothes.

I don't know what SD has left at Mom's (that Mom paid for), but that is part of my point. If the stuff wasn't going to be SD's for life- than H paid WAYYYYYY too much in CS.

The last two years (since SD started working) she told us that she was made to pay for some of her own clothes, and all of her daily necessities (besides food at home). THis included- school lunches, shower gel, hair gel, deordant, toothpaste, etc.

SD's senior year H paid for ALL of her senior expenses, so yes he paid way too much in CS.

It is even more evident when BM TOLD H that without H's CS she would lose her house and have to live in an apartment with the other children. That she wanted SD to stay for at least one more year. If BM is using MOST of H's CS to subsidize their lifestyle (nicer house) than it seems like much of SD's CS is being used to live in the house BM choose whether than on necessities and clothes FOR SD. Such a pity.

Btw- let's not forget I am a bio-parent myself. I remember times were we didn't have much money, we didn't go off and buy a house we couldn't afford. We rented a chalet for $500/month, before that we lived in a duplex for $450/month. We didn't buy a house in NY that cost $160k with an extra $6k/year in taxes. It's about being SMART with the $$$ you do and not living beyond your means.
