My D is final, thanks!

Update: my Divorce was final in December '16.

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.

Thanks again, you are a great resource!

^^^ OOPS!! Didn't anyone tell you she can come back later and get it?? And she doesn't even hafta go to court. All it takes is one call to Support Enforcement. They handle everything.

When things settle down, give us the low-down on lessons learned - for the newbie who visits our forum. Thanx.

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.

Thats ignorance and plain old fear mongering.

Congratulations on your settlement!
