Talking My Child Support ends today.

After 18 years my ex will have to find a way to pay for her own horse feed and beer. I never had a problem one supporting my son, but the days of undermining and relationship sabotage are over. (well, probably not over just not funded be me) For all you younger guys out there just staring out, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Now to go shopping for that boat.

Remember you have to stop it. It won't just stop automatically if it's coming out of your pay check

Congrats

With me when child-support ended the bills went through the roof. Car, gas, insurance, clothes, school, etc.

I'm sure every penny goes directly towards the childs needs

Congrats BTW

I can't stand seeing women I know get lots of child support always posting on FB about their vacations..They seem to take 10x more than I ever could, did, or would take.

And no I don't use FB, I get the garbage repeated to me from others who do.

Why isn't there a way for women to prove with expense reports EXACTLY what they're spending the money on? If the child's needs aren't being met and they're going on lavish vacations every year on a teacher's salary, something doesn't add up.

I know how you feel right now. I paid faithfully for 16 years and mine ended last December. I would have felt different while paying it if it would have been used for my daughter.

Congrats! 3.5 years to go for me. I don't pay through the AG, just transfer the cash through money transfer to her bank each month. We created a savings account for our daughter and a part of my CS is deposited into that account, so at least my daughter will have something to start with when she's 18.

Hopefully I will be able to finally buy my boat when I'm done with CS.

I’ve never had to be on the paying end thank god. But my wife would get checks when the AG would pull it from her ex. That ended 5 years ago and we never knew if or when they’d come so you couldn’t count on them. I paid for my step daughter from her 7th Bday till now. No complaints but I had no problem spending that money when it came in.

I wouldn't trust any of the courts involved to do the right and correct thing, follow up on em. When I got custody of my daughter when she was 14 the dang court just kept me on for child support past due...for 5 years. I wasn't paying it, they were just noting that I was past due. Idiots. When I applied for a passport to go to Zimbabwe I was denied because I "owed" more than $10,000 in back child support....that I didn't owe. It took two weeks and a call to President George Bush to get it straightened out. Idiots.

I dont recieve it or pay it, but your ex sounds like a decent person. Way too many abuse it driving fancy cars, nice dinners, etc... and leave nothing for the kid. My dad left my mom, but he paid more than he had to, and my mom didnt blow it. Both good people, just one made a bad decision....him...then another really bad one being a second marriage. That decision is still a bad one in my opinion. I hope to never divorce, but if i do, it will be a girlfriend the rest is the way, or maybe a few.

My wife is on the receiving end. We take every check and put it in a savings account for my stepdaughter. They were a package deal and I accepted that responsibility. We are also blessed to be in a financial position to be able to afford to do this.

Because it's super easy to just write down the big expenses. House(apartment etc), car payment, insurance (auto and health), food and Bam! The child support money is accounted for going towards the child.

Easy to leave out the vacations, slot machines, other fancy car, eating out, expensive clothes for mom, etc...

Better check to make sure AG doesn't come after you one day. I had a buddy that did that for 12 years and his Ex got mad at him and turned him in. AG said all that money was considered a gift and he owed a huge amount in back CS. He almost committed suicide over it.

I know two guys that had to pay back child support for the same reasons. They had been paying the ex all along.

Congrats and good on you for taking care of it for all those years. Never paid but know how it it when someone doesn't. Raised my step son from 7 years on. His daddy wouldn't stay in one place or work enough to have anything to garnish. Saw him once in court in Jefferson where he stayed many times when they could get their hands on him. Owed around 50K. I knew we wouldn't see any of it and just made do. Mark is 37 now so we made it.

I've raised my kid since he was 3 and received child support this whole time (turns 18 next month). Not always the case that the father gets hosed. I was able to show I was a better parenr

Mine is done next month, and just like the others it would not have hurt as bad if I wasn’t also buying him shoes and clothes. I actually had the woman at the AG’s office apologize for not being able to get her more money.

Yep! I know it can backfire on me. I keep some detailed records, but I know they won't hold up. My ex and I do have a pretty good relationship, and I can only hope she won't turn tail. If she does, at least my CS back pay won't be to the tune of 36k per missing year...

Easy- if his gross annual income is 180k.

Usually, child support is a flat 20% of your gross income to start, and goes up slightly more for additional children.

1.5 years to go for me. The dummy told my son that when he graduates, she and her mother are moving to Alaska, and she'll start giving him the child support money every month, "to help him get by".
The look on his face was classic when I told him her gravy train derails two months before he graduates. She had told him that I had to pay until he's 21. He's just now realizing what a pathological liar she is.

Yeah, I have a member of my family (through marriage) that is already telling her daughter (who's 9) that you just need to have a bunch of kids from different daddies if you don't want to work or pay taxes. "You get fun babies and free money!" and then laughs while shoving cheetoes in her piehole and buying tickets to see Taylor Swift.

She kinda screwed herself though (along with the 50 dudes that did too) as 2 of her 4 baby daddies are broke and in prison.

I'm not fond of this person, if that wasn't clear.

No ex wife with child support. But plenty of ex’es cost me plenty of money over the years.

Just a bit of a side note to the OP. Child is 18, no more ex wife RANSOM payments anymore. Congrats. But now the real cost comes. College ? Cars ? Bows ? Guns ? Hunting and fishing trips ? And ofcourse, “dad, my friend is coming and their parents are broke”.

From a 60 year old man with no kids ? God’s blessed you with that child, now the child is of age, now you’re not being help ransom by the state, get out there and do some life memory things TOGETHER. Make em day I got the BEST old man in the world.

There’s no price for that ! Get em a carbon Hoyt too !!! Lol

Hopefully I will be able to finally buy my boat when I'm done with CS.
Extremely dangerous financially to do this! Hope it ends well for you. Don't ever **** her off or your done.

Not always true. My wifes ex only paid $4488 a year for 17 years. She tried to get more early on but he would never show any proof of employment. Our daugher (I raised her) turned 18 a couple of years ago and after all the threats he made about not paying CS and all the late and missed payments, his mother finally fessed up that she was paying it the whole time.
