I got 50/50 custody of my son. Successfully Negotiated to buy her out of the house & alimony in the settlement. No child support. Lost 80% of my retirement, but that's ok I like to live in the now ... plus I still have a few years to build the retirement back up again.
It was a long 3 years to get there. Thank you all for the tips and support!
The most important thing during the process was just staying in the house, it was tough but would have been a disaster if I had moved out.
While a child support order , or lack of one, is not permanent, in no case and in no state can someone get a petition for child support, a finding for child support , an order for child support and enforcement of that child support order completed with one phone call.
