We had agreed on an amount for child support. Now people are telling my husband that we can't do that.
---> Tell your husband that “people” are wrong. The courts don’t have a problem with people making their own decisions so long as it is fair. I’ve been involved with many consent decrees/orders and I have yet to see a Judge change the amount.

---> Are you using forms supplied from your local court or are you using genernic forms? I only ask this because if you are using genernic forms, you want to make sure they meet the standards of the court and have the proper headings. If you have any questions, you can always PM me.
People are telling him that after the divorce is final we will be served to go to court and then they will decide on child support. Can't we just include that in our divorce papers if we agree.

Is 150.00 a week too much for one child. He brings home 1400.00 a month and I have been a stay at home mom. I will need to go back to school to get any kind of job.
---> Yes it is. That works out to $650 a month, which means he is only being left with $750 to live on and that’s not a whole lot. You actually stand a good chance with this amount of the courts not agreeing since it is not “fair”. What state are you in? How long were you married? How long were you a SAHM?
