CCR wrote:Let's see....she has 3 children with different fathers....that makes 3 child support orders. By definition, her job title is a child support collector.
CCR wrote:No chance for alimony after a 2 year marriage. None. Don't pay anything voluntarily.
defaultuser wrote:How much do you make? How much does she make? If you tell me, I can let you know how much you'd be looking at in CS in Florida. As far as primary parent and all that, it isn't a concern in FL. There isn't even the word custody in the laws anymore. All you do is define a time-sharing agreement, and parental responsibility which is decision making...

jumbledone wrote:Best thing for kids is to grow up with both parents in a stable house. Why would you want your toddler to not have the best possible upbringing? Why do you seem resigned? I'd be in there swinging to try to right it, as that is much easier (and cheaper) than resigning.

She may gross $350.00 - $400.00 per week. I've gotten all kinds of numbers. I've seen CS values range from $900.00 on the high side to less than $350.00 on the low. I need a good solid number. Also, I may want to impute her at her previous job's rate: $17.50 per hour, full time. She wasn't looking to hard for work, during her stint of unemployment. Would I be rocking the boat if I have her imputed at a higher rate?
