Why is your job an ideal one?
b.  What is the ideal job and why if you are not there?

What are you looking forward to?

Where do you see yourself five years from now?  Ten (if you can project that far ahead, Lol!)?

Bonus:  Do you like the name George?

So basically you have no proof that you earn a comparable salary, gotcha.

<<Honest living-who doesn't make an honest living? >>

People who don't make one, read the papers and/or use google skills to find the many people in the court systems that are being charged or have plead guilty.

What is there to fight for? My children's quality of life wouldn't change if CS changed.

Really? When was the last time you took your kids on a REAL vacation?

Wow, that low huh?  The credit cards and lines of credit charged back up?  

Low? Why would you think that? Even if I made a million dollars, I would not tell a total stranger. I don't even tell my salary to family and friends as since it is not public and IS out there, there is no reason for anyone to know my personal business. 

I have one credit card and use is soley to get OBC (which has accumulated to a nice amount while we pay the bills off right away). Lines of credit? Nope. Just a mortgage and car loan.

And it should not be taxable income - it's already been taxed when the NCP earned it.   Also, it shouldn't cover the expenses of the child - because the CP should contribute to the child's expenses as well.

Edited to add the word "not".   My whole meaning is distorted without that!

I guess 3 weeks in Germany isn't a vacation ...

It sure helps and especially when you have 2 other incomes coming into your home.

Public proof? Nope, as my salary is not public.

Are we really going there again?   It's not really the # of incomes that matters - it's the bottom line dollar.

 

So, Family A's income - from 4 sources - is $150,000.

Family B's income - from one source - is $150,000. 

Both families live in the same area and have same number of kids.  But somehow Family A has more because they have 3 extra sources of income?   makes. no. sense.
