I know I haven't posted here before, but I had to share my news with someone!<br><br>
DS is 4.5, and 26 months ago I started the paperwork process to get child support. His dad is in another state, which really makes it harder to get anything done (we're at the mercy of the other state taking initiative).<br><br>
Just this summer we got to the point of them agreeing he should pay, and setting an amount. But the effective date would be June '07 forward, and nothing for the first 4 years of care. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"><br><br>
I was happy to at least have that, but resigned myself to accepting that although he'll be accruing that amount of obligation each month I may never see a penny.<br><br>
So I was shocked when I checked my mail last night and had a check from the state! I had just been debating whether I should pay $240 for a 5th birthday party at Pump It Up for DS.... now I think I will splurge and let him have his wish!!

Awesome!! I canceled my CS before it ever got started, it was taking months, and I didn't want her father to have rights to her if he wasn't even going to be around, so I'm glad for you that everything worked out and you got a check! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
