A funny thing has happened. I told my mother in law (a dear friend of mine, who also tried to stop the divorce ) how much my lawyer estimates child support will be. Of course she got upset and said how is he suppose to survive, and how could your lawyer screw him like that. I explained that the lawyer didn't make the law. That our government made the calculation sheet. And that I had explained to my stbx (her son) that he would be paying heavily if he went through with the divorce. Which I still don't want. She then says to me that maybe the CS amount will make him rethink the divorce. Of course I am a little pissed at the idea that the only reason he would be with me is to keep from paying CS. I told her that IF he changed his mind at this point then I would demand we go through counseling. Because there is obviously something wrong here. He has told me time and again that I've done nothing wrong. But our marriage is so wounded now that just saying nevermind to his lawyer just isn't enough. If he changed his mind I want to be holding all of the cards....the whole damn deck! I love this man and the life we had but work needs to be done. Now I don't know that he will even change his mind. And at this point, I'm not possitive that I want him to. Sure, somdays I would do anything for him to change his mind. But today isn't one of those days. Today I am standing tall with a tiny bit of justice flowing through my veins. So I wanted to ask a question..... I am looking at half of his pay. What kind of child support have the rest of you been told?
