So my next feat is filling out child support papers. My ex is trying to find a job, he's set up with a temporary one for the time being, but he's unsure of his work schedule as of now. Because I make sure to have things squared away ahead of time, as in a babysitter notified and lined up as many days ahead of time then when I'd need them to watch the kids, not knowing his schedule I know is not his fault, there's nothing he can do but wait and find out then let me know. So I talked to him about how difficult it is for me to find someone last minute, I don't have many relatives in town who have a free enough schedule to watch the kids any day I need, they all work on advance notice, and even if they didn't, I always try to be respectful to do that anyway. So I explained to him that because it's difficult to find someone, he not knowing what days he can definitley watch them yet, I would need to file for daycare assistance, and the only way I can get assistance is if I have a child support case open on him. I told him that because I'm working to be civil with him that in order to get assistance it's mandatory I have an open support case. It's not about being greedy. I catch myself trying to help others out and forgetting about myself. But knowing that I would have a consisent daycare so I can work and provide is my only option, and if there's a time where he can watch them as his job starts moving along, then he can take them instead of the daycare... does this make sense? Any ideas I haven't came across?
