I agree that that she should pay us. I was really shocked. At one point when we first got married we went to a lawyer and at that point we had him just about 100% of the time as she lived out of town. We thought we should get child support. Our lawyer told us not to open that can of worms because in reality, though she was seeing him one weekend over month or every other month, she could get child support from us for that one night a month she had him since we work and she doesn't. She lives with her boyfriend and hasn't worked in the 7 years we've been married. We live pretty modestly (dh is a construction worker and I work parttime), but any income is more than none. Basically, anytime we have any disagreement she says she's applying for child support. So, we are expecting it any day now.
There is only a "huge discrepency" because her income is zero. I'm expecting it to be a smallish amount of money especially if we get to subtract what we pay in health insurance for dss (I just re-checked, I pay 140 a month, just for him so that might wipe out her child support, depending on if they count the whole thing or half of it).
I was wondering if anyone has anything in an order about who pays for what. I know that even if she gets child support, we will still pay for everything, so is there any language in anyone's orders that says that parents have to buy clothes, pay doctor bills or help with health insurance?
