Not sure why. If he can't afford what he's paying, it would make sense for him to ask for a mod. It would also make sense for him to be in arrears, no?

That would have been my point :)

&lt;&lt;So I can see Jeff's frustrations.&gt;&gt;

I can too, he's paying a buttload of CS, and apparently mom's making more than him now, if I read that correctly?

I wonder if he met more than him, or more than she was at the time with the bonus she makes now? Confused...

Does he mean MORE (than him) when adding what he pays in CS and the 30% of his bonus to her? So when he subtracts that from his income and adds it to hers, she has the higher income for the year?

Sorry for the confusion I mean that with the CS and then now my bonus % she just about makes more or the same as me. doesnt really seem fair..and of course I can not sleep for fear of the unknown. I have probably 2K that I could cut a check for tomorrow. I would then work on paying her an extra $300.00 a month until it was paid off. Which may even happen in the two months if I hit bonus again. I have had a lot of issues to rebuild over the last year..to many to go into.

I guess it just makes me sick to my stomach that she created this on a 11 year marriage and I have to pay.

Not only that my son comes to me last night and says he doesnt want to go backto moms this week. Pretty common discussion, but I do support it and tell him he needs to spend equal time with his mother.

I forgot to mention does that seem like something the court would agree to?

No, she doesn't make more than him. He makes $110k BEFORE his bonus. He hasn't said how much his bonus is, but it puts his income well over $110k.

She makes $45k. He said that her bonus is between $6k and $10k. Even with CS @ $1500 a month, that puts her income at $45k + $10k + $18k = $73,000. He makes $110,000 plus bonus, which makes his income, not even including his bonus at $110k - $18k = $92k PLUS BONUS!

You really think the courts are going to take a look at those numbers and do anything, especially if his bonus is significant?

Jeff, approx. how much are your bonuses?

I think he says he owes her $8k, so around $27k? But don't forget he pays insurance on kids too. And apparently he took on more on the marriage debt too. My guess is that is where he feels it isn't fair.

Really not much he can do except seek modification if he can, and feels he can get the CS modified. Can't really get much worse.

"I guess it just makes me sick to my stomach that she created this on a 11 year marriage and I have to pay."

Whoa... slow down... this is not on her... BOTH OF YOU created a child, the length of the marriage does not impact cs. You AGREED to the terms originally, again, this is not on her. If circumstances have changed, file for a mod, and be prepared to cut a check for what you can and a plan on how much you can afford per month to pay on the arrears. If the judge asks for higher, be prepared to explain to him why you can only pay the $300. This may involve bringing in your monthly budget, as well as as proof; i.e., if you say that your mortgage payment is $x, bring your statement to prove that it IS $x. May not be needed, but it's a lot more convincing to show the judge your numbers.
