I don’t know if this was the right step, but I called lawyers in Idaho today. I really need the child support to make it month to month. I don’t know what the fees will be because I didn’t get any further than leaving messages, but I hope it’s something I can do. I’m tired of the run around from Dauphin County Domestic Relations. I don’t even know if they’re actually pushing Idaho because they never seem to take notes of when they’ve called them. I think that they haven’t even called once since I started pestering them again. Why is it like this just to get a man to support his children? Our church states clearly and strongly that a man needs to help support his children. I’ve had a support order in place this entire time since I have had sole custody. Why am I crying over something so stupid?
Sad to say I will have to continue this GFM in case I need donations to pay legal fees while in pursuit of child support. I remember when I didn’t have majority custody and I paid support. There was a time I lost my job and didn’t pay any support. When went to court about it I went with the same chip on my shoulder that most people go with, “I don’t want to pay him, he’s my ex!” But as I sat there watching the parents who simply wanted to pay their bills and needed that support, and watching the other parents with excuses as to why they weren’t paying, I realized child support isn’t paying the ex. Child support is a responsibility that should be paid, willingly, in order to help support the children. I am not saying there aren’t recipients who misuse the money, but the majority of us simply want to provide for our children.
Ok, that’s it for today; I need to see if I can make it in today for my drug test for Hershey.
