Scenario
« on: Jan 04, 2004, 01:56:32 PM »
CP received $150.00 Child support a month. 2 children involved. One child was 50/50 custody, the other, CP full time custody, hence, the $150.00 per month.

Even with the Child support, CP was low income. CP received housing assitance, daycare assistance, medical assistance.

For totally irrelevant reasons, CP is now NCP.

Now that they are NCP, they lose $150.00 a month in CS. They also lose wages along with overtime due to the visitation schedule. They lose the medical assistance, and the daycare assistance. They lose partial housing assistance.

They cancel the phone, remove cable TV, cash in stock to get all bills pd. so that they can survive. It's not enough.

Now they have to pay support. The remaining money allows for rent and heat. No electric, no food, no car payment money($108.00 month).

How is this person suppose to maintain a home in which to visit the children? How is this person suppose to get to work with out a car? How does this person stand a chance in hell of getting the kids, who are getting in trouble in school, and going from straight A's to failing grades, back?

Just wondering.
