Quoting Red Bottom:" You re-file with his new income. They will base it off of that. When he gets a new job, you will refile ... [snip!] ... can't even afford your own rent and food? He sill needs to survive while providing for his kids while he looks for a new job. "
Finally, a woman who gets it. I thought I was the only one. Yes, some men just don't want to pay, but some women think they are entitled to the world. My brother was working two jobs to keep his bitch ex-wife happy. She started going to the gym and got in great shape. She also got a boyfriend who worked out in the same gym. He was much better off and made more in his one income that my brother made in his two incomes. Still, she took him to the cleaners and he had to pay child support on both jobs. So when he met a woman he liked, he took on a third job. He seriously works a lot of hours. Well guess what? The bitch decided she was entitled to part of that income also. So he pays child support off of three jobs.
It's not like she needs it either. Truth is, she could get along just fine with no child support. In fact, if she was a good mother, she would allow him to do as he suggested, which is put the money in the bank for the two girls to go to college on later. Why not? She does not NEED the money. She wants it to keep herself in nice clothes and that new BMW her husband bought her.
The truth is, many men have to live crappy lives until their children are grown. The stereotype is some business exec who makes 6 figures and lives high on the hog while the kids and ex go hungry, but the truth is, most men give up a significant portion of their income and have to move in with friends or family. At a minimum, they have to do this until all debt is liquidated so that what little they retain, they can live off of.
Many, but not all of these women already have boyfriends that they move in with, or marry withing a few years after their divorce. So they have her income, his income and the child support. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that if the woman does have a new SO who has a decent income, her standard of living improves greatly.
