Here's the best joke in town. I'm currently paying a four digit monthly child support for two kids. My oldest is 18 and she starts college in the fall. As child support will be cut in half when she finishes high school (in June), I offered to pay 1/2 the tuition/books/fees/other expenses plus help with down payment on her first car. In the midst of working out the college and car expenses, my X is behind my back taking me to court for a child support increase for the third time. The real problem is that the gravy train is coming to an end and my future hard earned dollars will go directly to my kids. I'd be surpised if 1/2 of the current support goes to my kids. I wouldn't wish this X on my worst enemy. Heck I feel sorry for her current husband. Bottom line is no joke and I take supporting my kids seriosuly. I'm going to have to reduce my contribution toward college for every dollar that the greed based support increase brings. One must draw the line somewhere, and four digits per month is where I've drawn it. Any and all comments appreciated!
