    This is why I think it's generally for the parents and not the children.

    i think by high school age hopefully the kids are old enough and responsible enough to decide where they want to stay on certain nights and still do well in school but primary...it's just too much IMO.

    i guess the thing is, what about picking step-child up from school on Friday after school, drop off monday. There is your half a week, then factor in holidays etc. but this isn't what the OP is about anyway. It's about a disgruntled step mother wanting her husband to pay less CS and be able to justify it to herself.
    Oh my gosh. This is possibly the rudest and most presumptuous thing I have ever read on here. It's truely disgusting. I'm not perfect, but I'm certainly not the disgruntled, evil step mother or controlling partner that you've just made me out to be. I do so much for my SS and child support is the least of my worries in the situation. His well being and having an equal relationship with his father is my primary concern. It's a difficult situation for ALL involved, including the child, which is exactly why I (not his mother or father) linked him up with counselling to help him through.
    Since when was it okay to deliberately make derogatory comments on here about someone? A bit presumptuous I think.

    Sorry, I must have misunderstood. I thought this thread named "child support" was about not wanting to pay CS to your husband's ex. My apologies if it wasn't about not wanting to pay CS and was about your step-son's wellbeing.

    Oh happens all the time, there is one type of mom on here that you cant say anything about or people try to get you banned. Remember BM is always right, and fathers have the right to shut up pass over the money and if they behave right they may get to see the kids if BM feels like it that is. At least that is how I read most of the posts these days regarding this topic.

    Default Child support

    Well thanks to everyone for their opinions and suggestions. I've got nothing else to say on the subject, seeing how my input isn't valid at all, after all step parents seem to be only willing to cause trouble and make waves for custodial parents and seek out to deliberately damage a child. My partner is going to keep following this up, however like someone else said, best not to rock the boat. He really does fear the repercussions. He's really just trying to have a meaningful and equal relationship with his child, but I guess he isn't entitled to that.
    Thanks everyone

    I think you must have misunderstood, it's an easy mistake to make. Thanks for the apology. It was about the fact that my DH is paying more child support than previously due to BMs choices and her dishonesty about her income. She's entitled to her choices and has her rights after all.
