IMO, the short answer is to suck up and deal with it. My ex gets roughly 30% of my gross earning in SS. She gets 2x the money she earns on her own, from me. PT job, now with absolutely no incentive to work 1 more hour. Why would you when your salary triples? Il has a 30%-20% rule. And I'm stuck for 12 yrs, or until she marries/cohabitates - whatever comes first.

Set your direct deposit, and move on. Do your best. Irks me to dwell on it, so I try not to.

You're responding directly to the Op (original poster) who has not replied to this thread in 3 months.

Always a good idea to check posting dates before replying to a thread.

good advice though. Set the support payment up for direct deposit so you don't have to hand write a check which can be more painful.
There is nothing more permanent than a temporary order
