If the happily ever never comes and let's just say along the way to the unplanned finish line, a critter or two has come along....well, chances are there will be some child support involved and since Shon Cook is a highly qualified Family Attorney and our great sponsor and contributor.....we're going to let her share some thoughts.
First off, child support is your responsibility. Pay something....anything if you are committed to it. Even if your entire life changes, find a way to put something toward it. Next, child support is based on a number of factors that need to be looked at carefully and maybe re-evaluated over time as life situations change as do economic situations. One thing is pretty clear in Shon's thoughts today, in the child support world...chances are that neither parent will be overly thrilled with their end of the deal. If it's the payor....they will think they are paying too much and of course, the payee.....it's not enough. Take a listen.
