I've learned one thing watching all this celebrity crap... Never get married or divorced in California. They seem to have the most screwed-up domestic laws in the country.

Wise_Guy: I have no experience with child support, so forgive me if this is a stupid question--

Wouldn't it reasonable to require the ex-wife to provide receipts of what she is spending the money on?  I'd like to see her explain how the kid needed $1200 earrings or eats $500 worth of food in a week.


I think it would be reasonable. I know that when that child support is coming from social security, they will. CSB time:
Husband dated a girl who's father died when she was young, her mom married and had a few more kids. When girl was 15/16, she complained to social security that her mom was not using that money for her but to support non-working new spouse and favored his children over her. Some type of person was sent out to audit their financial records and interview friends/family. After investigation was over, checks were sent directly to girl instead of mom and she was granted financial emancipation.

That was an unexpectedly funny movie. I thought it would suck but watched it for Elizabeth but it actually wasn't bad. I was amazed. And holy shiat was Liz hot in that.

ExperianScaresCthulhu: Galileo's Daughter: Mooches: Evenbiggerknickers: I prefer to remember him as such:

So much this.

Thirded.  And he was great in "Gods and Monsters."

I would also like to say that my ex is a stand-up guy.  Our son is 19 and newly employed, out on his own; my ex works full time and I recently joined the ranks of the unemployed.  My ex is still paying the same amount of child support he did when our son lived at home and went to school ($1000 monthly).  This has helped immensely considering our daughter still lives with me.  Unemployment benefits and child support only go so far, but I am very, very grateful for his generosity.

/csb
//or not

would you return the favor?


Return the favor if my ex were unemployed?  Yes.  When we separated, I didn't immediately ask for CS due to the fact that he'd been downsized.  I got it at a later date, after he got a new job.

MattyFridays: Here's something very odd I noticed.

Fraser has worked exclusively in film.  He's never done TV, outside of cameos and a few random guest shots.  I wonder why that is.  He seems to be perfectly suited, skill-wise, to be the lead of a dad in a family sitcom.


I liked his scrubs cameos.

MattyFridays: The only problem with your argument is that even if Fraser was there to stay with the kids, the lack of work would still downgrade their lifestyle.


The argument is sound. According to the article he does get work, but even if he didn't it is still be based on his income, which can include investments, rental properties, and such. Considering he current situation he may very well be entitled to lowering the child support amount. Child support payments are adjusted up and down all the time based on changes in either parent's financial situation. This is why he petitioned the court.

In my opinion the equation should be pretty simple: take combined income of both parents, determine what percentage of the total come from each parent, determine how much of the total would have been spent on the children (this is the tough part)  and then have each parent be responsible for the percentage of the child's money equal to their percentage of the total income.

He was the basis for the best episode of Scrubs ever, and yes that is saying something.

Madbassist1: John Buck 41: Madbassist1: Bigedmond: HAHA, suckers.  My ex was dumb enough to get knocked up before the divorce proceedings, and i got out of all child support because she wanted the divorce over quickly.  So she gave into all my demands, No child support, Joint legal and physical custody.  Like a BOSS

Nice to know you're a selfish bastard who doesnt give a fark about his children.

Isn't the reason there's no child support is because they have joint legal and physical custody? At least that's how it worked for me and my ex 28 years ago.

One, there is NEVER equal custody. Someone is spending more on the kid. How much you wanna bet its mom, since it looks like the kid is new. Second, do you really think that big edmond is actually gloating about all the time he gets to spend with his infant child?

Also (and I didnt say this earlier) Brendan Fraser is a great comedic actor, as well as a competent dramatic one. I'm sure he'll do ok.


Reading comprehension on this site is going down hill...  The newest kid she is pregnant with isnt mine.  It is her new Fat fark boyfriends. 

2, i have my daughter 60% of the time, and basically pay for every need she has.  I pick her up from school everyday, have her on weekends, taker her to dance, volleyball and church classes even though i disagree with religion all together.  Days like today when her mother was actually off work, she didn't want to see her kid.  So keep talking shiat, but please learn to read before you open your.... to late, bet your already talking crap again.

Yes, the original sentence is so perfectly clear of your situation and couldn't be taken in a literal context at all.  Suggested, yes. Inferred, yes.  Easily describing a situation different than the intended, yes.

Relax, people in the thread finally deciphered it.

I don't care. I really liked "Monkeybone" and "BeDazzled". Then again, I was 16.

Perhaps you just need to learn to write, boss.
