Default Something to smile about!

Found out something pretty funny today...

Shared 50-50 custody. They have both always made within 1-2K of each other. Mom keeps the CCTB (about 180/mo) because when they first split dad always made 1-2Kmore. They never bothered with the child support for this reason (would have been about $15.00 a month - CCTB makes up for the difference). For some unknown reason she seems to think he suddenly started making a lot more than that. Of course we have to hear this through the lawyer ($1000 meeting later). She has now stated (after 10 years) that she wants child support. So dad says fine. No problem at all. Do all the financials by the book.... gives the T4's.

What mom doesn't know is that she will now get 6 months of CCTB (about $180/mo) instead of 12 and dad will get his 6 months of CCTB, as the old agreement is out the window.

AND the funniest part. 2 out of the last 3 years mom made more and would have to pay about 15/mo.

So not only will mom be out the
$180 for 6 months but she will have to give him $15 a month!

Sadly, this has cost us about $1000 in lawyers fees because mom refuses to communicate with dad.

Can't fix stupid.

Sorry to jack your thread, but something similar happened to me.

The ex wife wanted my $8000 in assets, so she though it was smart to spend $15,000 in lawyer fees to get it. Oh ya, she has a bachelors degree in math.

I would say she is 80% to blame for not wanting to talk to me and 20% for the lawyer telling her how much she can get from me.
