So glad I found this site.. Im looking for support groups for women who pay child support but there is nothing. Today I went in court hoping for a decrease in child support my oldest daughter who is 13 has been living with her Dad for 4years now. We have joint physical and legal but her primary residence is with her Dad. I just don't get it how he has 2 incomes at his home and I am a single parent raising my other daughter who is 5 I don't receive support for her from her Dad. they come up with these numbers without considering everything My support was increased by 300$ her Dad and I make about the same money. we both provide shelter food and clothing. Im at a lost right now I feel all child support does is ruin lives including children who have to be in the middle of this chaos. Just like not all fathers are deadbeats same goes for women the difference is when a woman says her child doesn't live with them people don't know the circumstances we just have to walk around being judged.
