It was more my fault why your answer was generic - I would like to expand...I tried to edit my initial question but I couldn't. I apoligize for not just replying to you - this is my first time on here and honestly, I don't have an 'extra' $28 for an answer that I already had found online. Let me explain more why I wasn't satisfied (again - I just didn't give enough details, I believe).
We have two 20 year olds (one will be 21 this month) and a 16 year old. Our daughter (20) has a 4 year old son. Living situation:
Ex-Husband (in Mississippi) - has our 16 year old
Ex-Wife (in Missouri) - has the 20 year old and her 4 year old son
Our son that is almost 21 has been on his own for the most part - up until a couple of weeks ago, he would spend about 15% of his time at my home (staying with friends/boss's homes the rest of the time). Now he just comes to eat probably 40% of the time. I pay his truck insurance ($175/month) and his phone bill ($75/month).
I have agreed to send him $100/month toward our 16 year olds' auto insurance (which they have USAA - so it is cheaper than anything I could get for him); and I have agreed to pay 1/2 of his back to school clothes/supplies. When, actually - I can't afford any of it. My monthly take home is about $1550 and my basic bills (rent, utilities, cell phone for me/21 yr old son/daughter, Auto/Renters Insurance, and my car payment) total $1368. That leaves me just under $100 for everything else...food, fuel, sundries, etc.
So, with me supporting the 3 children/grandson here, I just don't see how I could be asked to pay him child support for one.
I am trying to figure out what my next step(s) should be...I obviously cannot afford to hire an attorney right now - I am considering selling plasma just to get enough to send him the money I have promised him.
My AGI last tax season was about $34,000. His AGI was around either $60,000 or $80,000 - I can't remember for certain, so to be conservative say $60,000 (I helped him with his taxes - that is how I know).
I just cannot see how I can be asked to pay child support when he has one child and I have two (not counting what I do for the 21 year old).
