The crutch of it is... we are already divorced, he just wants to go back and change the money aspect of it. He thinks that even though he makes more than 80% of the income considered for support, all bills should be split 50/50.
I gave up 7 plus years of my life to live in the crap town where he has built his career. It has taken the divorce, and moving back to a place where there is a college and university to get my life back on track. So he thinks that because it is not his choice for me to go back to school,and the kids to get braces, he should not have to give up his new Excursion and new F250 truck.
Fine, I never took the portion of his retirement, he left me with none of the assets, (granted he took most of the debt, but he also took all the equity) Maybe it is time to change that....
I have no problem supporting the children, I HAVE been for four years, while he has paid the absolute minimum in CS. I have worked crappy waiting tables jobs, taken in daycare, and now it is a time for me to blossom. My new husband is currently taking the bus, or riding his bike to work, so that I can have our ONE vehicle to take the kids to school/daycare/soccer and take myself to school.
While my ex has three new non fuel efficiency trucks, a 5th wheel trailer and spends more on one car payment than the children get in CS.
: But I am evil and greedy.
So to answer that other crazy thread, I do not expect him to fully support his children, BUT I do expect his children to be supported in the manner in which he supports his new wife, (and her four kids) Or in the manner that his over 100K income would be supporting our family if he had stayed faithful, and not chosen his "new" family over the one he had already produced.
