"That's not Child Support. That's alimony. And thankfully, your idea of how it should be isn't how it is. Child support is supposed to be an equitable split between the parents to support the children."

Yes it is should be an equitable split - parenting time - should be an equitable split - there should be no cs split and yes what I stated is more along alimony so call it whatever you'd like - once the shp is on his/her feet no more monies change hands. The parents should split activities fees and the insurance etc... but no cs - Thankfully not everyone thinks they should be paid to take care of their own children - unfortunately it is the more prevalent attitude - an entitlement attitude (for doing simply what you are suppose to do) has not done our society any good.

Each parent needs to take care of his/her child on his/her time with his/her income except things like insurance, activities for the child, things that one parent should not be expected to foot the entire bill - those should be shared - but no exchange of monies to do ones job as a parent. The child will not suffer because they have what they need at each house albeit one house may have nicer stuff, vacations, cars etc... which means nothing compared to having ones parents equally. I'm just not into material things and if my hubby wants to (in the event of a divorce) give our son something, he can - so what if I can't afford it - our son knows what things cost and is taught the value of a dollar and that rent and food etc... comes first - but that is just me - I am not raising an entitlement attitude individual so he would not have an issue if one house was "better" financially then the other because it does not matter he gets both parents which is far better for him then a "insert whatever here" - one thing my hubby and I agree on completely is not raising an entitled child into an entitled adult.

I could not take cs in the event of a divorce and my husband makes way more than I do but I do not think he should pay me to take care of our child that we decided to have together (yes we would split our child 50/50 even though he does many thing a lot differently - he has the right to make decisions and raise our son in his home how he sees fit) I do think he should contribute to insurance and activities (as should I) but to hand me money - no - I will earn that myself and we will live in my household with what my income provides.

I may think differently than a lot of cp parents because I don't need to control every move of the other parent I can accept different ideas and different ways of doing things I don't need to tell the other parent how what why where and when - trying to control someone is nothing but a power trip that garners frustration on both sides.
