Re: He says he wants divorce, I don't think he does and I sure don't
I don't agree with putting all financial support of the child on the father. That this notion is "fair" is crazy to me. Lots and lots of women take child support and are allowed to spend it on themselves or their new bf's. Seen it myself personally.
If a man makes 150k a year, why should he have to pay 30k a year in child support, and the ex wife pay nothing? It seems the man gets shafted with custody going to the wife almost invariably, and he gets shafted financially as well. And people call this "fair"????
This fairness idea needs revamping. Divorce should result in accountability for both parents, not just men. Women should be willing to do their part since they want all this equality. Like the OP, she should go after what's fair, but nothing more. But most women aren't like OP. Too bad.
But I agree, OP, you should listen to your lawyer and get what you can. If you think it's unfair, you can always give what you don't need back to him. But don't be too nice. Just be fair.
