I'm not divorced, and hope not to be anytime soon, but it seems that's the path my wife is leading us, so I was wondering. I'm in my early thirties, and we have 3 young children (8, 6, and 5). Child support would be roughly $325/week for them. I've done a quick spreadsheet, and found out that if I pretty much starve and freeze, I can only afford about 700/mo for rent. That being said, if she was the primary parent with joint custody, even with the child support the kids would pretty much starve. How do people do it? It's bad enough that they may have to go through this family breakup, but now they won't be able to live the lifestyle they're used to. Would anyone mind sharing how much of a struggle they've had, and what they did to try and balance things? I'm terrified for my whole family (wife included).
