Fortunately my ex husband pays his child support regularly, and I am thankful for that. I can't stand when I hear men complain about paying child support, it costs so much more than what anyone understands to raise a child when they grow out of clothes and shoes every month, paying for preschool and daycare, doctors appts, not to mention the basics like a place to live, water for baths and food in their bellies. I pay close to $800 a month just in daycare and preschool. Kids are not cheap.
sounds familiar...only add the fact she wants custody to a) not have to pay child support and/or b) so she can get a child support check. She doesn't care what is in the child's best interests and she never has. For her, it's all about HER needs. Well to me, it's all about THE CHILD'S needs. You don't have to give birth to be a good mom, and giving birth doesn't make you a good mom.
