=/ She still has bills. And she is on a seemingly never end spending spree. I figure she will be in the hole sooner rather than later.

I agree...the issue is not her assests. The true issue is what is reasonable based on M5's h's income to raise 4 children...3 not living with him and one that does.

is whatever property you are living in.....it doesn't matter if you had one first...that may have been your primary at one them, then you got another one which became primary. If the first one is the rental now, then it lost its primary status as soon as they moved into the other place and it became an income property.

going to the dr. 3 times a week is probably not reasonable. Playing sports, probably is reasonable considering their ages.

Not playing the amount of sports they are is not reasonable with our income.

Hopefully I might be able to clear this up......

M5, honestly... and don't shoot me... I do not believe that their home will be counted in for CS. If that was the case... I assure you... we would have MORE here that are aware of it.... and could offer advice.... We are talking about the avg. Joe family here.. not a millionare... NOT filthy rich... so... I wouldn't waste another breath even going into "what ifs". I know it's on your form... "assets" as it's on ALL of our forms... trust me.. I went through a very nasty divorce... with a money hungry ex... who wanted me to pay every dime that he could get.. FOR Me... paying over 1K for ONE child... if my home could had been used.. HE would had done it....

NOW.. I did read the TN guidelines.. and I DID find that a HOME could be considered "IF" (and this is verbatim) Extravagent lifestyles, including ownership of valuable assest and resources such AS (home and auto) that appears inappropriate.

In what you have said about the BM.. I do NOT think they fall into this catagory....

It has a lot to do with CS when the settlement has afforded BM the ability to not produce an income because she no longer works. This is the exact reason why many states have a clause in CS laws that refers to other spouses or household members incomes can be considered when computing income. On paper it would look like BM and her husband were bums, if they had to prove their income, that is why assets,401k, stocks, bonds and bank account balances,etc. are discoverable. When I went to my CS hearing all of this was asked for as well as any liabilities that I have, as well as monthly expenses.

Then THAT is the issue. Why can't your H just say NO. Unless the sports are free no sports? What is so hard about that? I tell my daughter no all the time.

Maybe playing school sports, but not club sports that cost several hundred dollars per child, DH simply can not afford that, BM can.
