What happens is CS payors loses job?
My DH is worried about his job. He pays CS and "extras" for his 2 kids from marriage #1, and we have 2 kids together. Right now this totals 50% of his income. The way I see it is that if he loses his job, CS should stop while he is unemployed, or based on his unemployment wages (very low).
Ex-wife can be financially responsible for her kids (while he is unemployed and looking for work) and I can be responsible for our 2 kids. To me, this makes common sense.
In an intact family, if one wage earner loses a job, NO income is available,and people just have to live with that, and children in intact families experience the highs and lows of life and learn valuable lessons when one parent loses a job.
Makes sense, but I have heard disturbing things like CS payors cannot lower CS payments untill next years taxes or they have to wait months and months in order to MAYBE have their CS obligations lowered.
That is crazy. We could not even pay our bills or our mortgage if he has to pay at the same level he does now.
In Canada second kids are not considered at all when determining CS and I am really terrified of having to keep paying her out of MY earnings if DH loses job as he predicts. It seems SOOOOO unfair to our kids! Any experience with this?
