During my consult, this along with the custody issues were the main focus of the discussion.

The lawyer threw up a worst-case scenario of $1k/mo for up to three years. This is the kind of doomsday scenario i was hoping to avoid. $1k SS + 4-600 a month in CS assuming we have split custody sets me back to a entry level salary for a few years. I can manage it, but vacations and savings will be out of the question unless i live out of a car. She's resistant to going to a FT job, but i'm still pushing.

Wish me luck.
