Do not even think of lowering it. Your ex should be ashamed of himself for not voluntarily giving you more to help his autistic son.

Do not lower it to comfort him, your son needs that money. How selfish that is of him to even ask you to lower it. When I had to have my husband pay, he had to pay $369 a month. Our child is worth that I think.

Give me a break.  Don't feel sorry for him.  You need to be thinking about your child.  Especially, if the child is autistic he/she needs more.  If your ex is having a cow over that I would say give him a hard time and fight for more.  If anyone should be giving anyone a break it should be for the child.  Don't lower it more.  If he can't afford the amount he owes he can get off his and find a better job and pay more.  He should be thinking of his child not himself.  Another dead beat dad if you ask me.  Sorry I don't know him but men like this make me mad.  I have 3 children and their dad ran off and don't pay a cent that is ok I don't need him but I cant stand dead beat dads.  Don't give him a break.  Be tough you and your child deserve more.  Take care and good luck.

Thanks!! And when we had our very first child support meeting he was supposed to pay $225 a month and he asked me if i could lower it and i said i would to $175a month. I think that's very reasonable. And i told him most women wouldn't even lower it to begin with so he should be lucky!!! And he takes him every week but he picks him up tuesday afternoon and takes him to school weds. Morning so he doesn't even have him 24 hours.!! He said if i would lower the support that he wouldn't have to work so much and he could see our son more! Please!! You know what he does for a job?? He does security back in the boondocks kinda and all he has to do is sit in his car!! No weapon, no like cb radio or whatever, he just has to sit in car and make sure no one comes back to the mining area. So it's not like its a hard and tiresome job!!!! And he's off like 2 or 3 days a week but yet he said he'd only see his son more IF I lowered support!!!! Thats so mean,,he's choosing money over his kid!! I try to tell him how selfish that sounds but he always turns it around on me and says I'm just a golddigger. He's always been lazy..when we were together he'd work for a couple months then quit then keep doing that. Work for a bit, then quit. He wouldn't even mow the grass!!! My dad had to do it!! He says $175 a month is too much but I don't think it is,, I just think he doesn't want to work as much cause he's lazy. He also owes $800.00 in arrears for back support for not keeping a job and HE ACTUALLY WANTS ME TO ELIMINATE THE ARREARS TOO!!! WHY IS IT THAT THE OTHER PARENT THINKS THAT THEY DONT HAVE TO PAY FOR THEIR KIDS?? I HAVE ANOTHER SON TO SOMEONE DIFFERENT AND HIS DAD GOT AWAY WITH PAYING ONLY $85.00 A MONTH!!! (CAUSE HE DOESN'T WORK MUCH AND PAYS FOR 2 OTHER KIDS!) SO HE GOT EASY AND THATS RIDICULOUS!! IT COSTS ALOT TO RAISE KIDS THESE DAYS!!!!!

Hon.... $175 a month isn't even enough to feed the child. My ex pays over $600 a month and is whining about it. He recently CHOSE to retire 12 years early and expects to get out of it all together. I think what I get is way too little, as my son is 15 and can eat a lot... My grocery bill is over $200 a week. He should be paying you more... MUCH MUCH more.

Oh gosh no way, he should be paying the full amount $225.00, if you lower it anymore you won't be able to survive. The cost of living has gone up..your child deserves that money...

No maam! I live in georgia and the laws here are not fair either. My ex husband is supposed to pay 175.00 / week for our two boys and the state doesn't seem to care if or how much he's behind (over 5,000.00) since i turned my case over to them. My husband that I'm married to now has one son and he pays 278.00 / week and only makes 70,000.00 / year!  and he has not missed a payment. I wish all men could be a man like him. He supports his own plus mine.

I dont think $175.00 is to much. Children are expensive. And with your son being autistic im sure that your child has more special needs as far as doctors and school. He is getting off easy. You should have never lowered it.

No !!! Everytime you lower the Child support amount you are taking money away from your child ... I pay $330 a week, of course i don't want to but that is what i am told to pay....
