CS Questions for 50-50
1. Has your BM/BD been ordered to find a job? I think it's a capacity to earn or ability to earn title of some sort.
2. Has your BM/BD been caught in lie after lie regarding income statement to CS?
a. If so, what was the consequence? Was your BM charged with contempt, perjury, or charged for falsifying documents? Whatever the penalty may be, please list it.
We have a BM who *can't* find a job (for over 7 years), yet remarried, moved over 4 hours away, and lives off of her new hubby's income, and has no other children to even be a SAHM. She even stated in Mediation that her husband makes enough money so that she DOESN'T have to work. I know that new hubby's income can't be imputed into her income for CS, so can she be forced to work since she has a child to support?
Custody is currently 50-50 with incomes (at divorce) roughly .50 cents hourly difference. Voluntarily quit her position to move to new hubby's location, and swear on the bible, stated at last court hearing that she was working for cash, since the time she filed for CS--which wasn't noted on her CS form 3 years ago, and wasn't noted once again for the review. Now it's review time, and she's unemployed yet again.
I just want to know that if she is once again truly unemployed, has your judge ever required the BM/BD to GET A JOB and support her/his children? Isn't that just a lack of voluntary unemployment? I've searched jobs in our area, as well as her area, and trust me, there are a lot of jobs out there that she would qualify for.
Please don't come down on me to harshly. I do fully support child support for those who work our asses off and still have deadbeat birth parents, but in this case, she would rather be a rich housewife of XYZ, and live off of CS than to get her own job, and rely on herself to raise her child. THAT pisses me off! I am a BM. No CS. 50/50, and I work for my kids and my family.
