77. Lots of whining in here ...
If you can't afford the children you have, DON'T have more of them!

Just because your husband lost his job, does not mean his kids don't still need food and clothes...

I don't have the link to the study at my finger tips, but in the majority of cases where men actually bother to SEEK CUSTODY of their children in a divorce, they get custody.

Sorry, no sympathy here.

I had a husband who had to pay child support for three children from his first marriage. I helped him navigate Michigan's child support system. When you do what you're supposed to, you don't have nearly as many problems with them..., isn't that strange? He ended up paying extra each week for over a year to get caught up, and it turns out he did that longer than he had to so ended up ahead! That was particularly good for us because when his ex wouldn't let the kids come to Michigan to visit, per the divorce agreement, we called and they got right on the stick and told her that if she did not let the kids come to visit, she would not be receiving her check! She shaped right up.
