YES! So the BM was trying to get more money (almost $100 more a week!) for the child from my DH--talking about how she is poor, can't meet the child's "basic survival needs", how she may lose her condo, etc. She's NOT working, hasn't worked in over 2 years, and I will put $ on it that she's NOT seriously looking for work. She pretty much expected my DH to pay for all her bills, pretty much said that in court.
He is paying the max (right now well over $1300 a month), plus we cover health insurance for the child (and the child has state aid as the secondary). She had filed a motion to basically have ALL the math recalculated--mind you the court order was at the end of the December and here we are in March! Her motion got DENIED (I'm betting she pissed off the judge!) and she will have no choice but to find work if she wants more money (and WE can take her to court to get the CS lowered). Don't get me wrong, I feel bad for the kid if what she is saying is true (although $1300 tax free is quite a bit of money, not like we're talking about $300 a month here), however the CS guidelines state that BOTH parents need to be financially responsible, yet so far only my DH has been held financially accountable.
Next up for us...legal custody.
It's 1 less thing to worry about because that has REALLY been weighing down on us. We know she is most likely going to file something else or try something else, but for now we can breathe a (small) sigh of financial relief....
