I can't understand.
« on: Aug 28, 2012, 12:54:06 PM »
I have lived on both sides of this subject.  I was a single mom who received minimum child support because for me it was more important that my child have a relationship with his father, he didn't but I didn't want to interfere with that.  I am also a step mother to two children who have a very involved father who pays way too much in child support and still has to spend at least two thousand dollars in travel expenses every time we see his children.  When will the state of Texas catch on that yes there needs to be support but at the same time emotional support is just as important as monetary support?

I never really cared.  I got $200 a month for 14 years until he stopped paying entirely.  I didn't want money to be the issue for him not seeing his son.
