Final Child Support Payment

>> Monday, July 8, 2013

Today, we made the final child support payment.  It's several days early but we really couldn't wait to cut that final legal tie with hubby's ex-girlfriend.  

Of course, that was after we had to argue with the child support enforcement agency over what was owed.  That stupid clerk tried telling us we had to pay for the entire month of July. Um, no, the court order says when the child turns 18, not to the end of the month of the child's 18th birthday. She was such an idiot.  I told her that she was violating their own damn order but she kept insisting.  I had to go to the woman in charge at the Court who agreed with us - duh.  Really, if their child support clerk doesn't know what the hell she is doing, I wonder how many other parents she is aggravating. We know that damn court order.  We've lived with it for years.  We expect the court who put it in motion would abide by it. 

So they did the final child support and fees figures.  Of course, they overcharged by about $15 (really, why expect a government child support employee to have more than a third grade math education?) but we are done arguing. We are just paying the overage and being done with it.

To make sure they don't overpay the ex, we are sending the child support first and then the check for the court's stupid fees a few days later.  Otherwise, they'd probably send the ex the court fee expenses too and then expect us to pay it again. Not happening.

I don't know how long it will take the court to send out the termination letter but done better be done! Can't wait for that letter!!
