    I've been through this before years ago and a different state and one father was in prison.

    This father is NOT in prison and makes good money, has like 40 acreas in the mountains, a truck, 66 mustang, a Taurus, another mustang, a brand new house they just built, a garage, a shop with lift, deck that wraps all the way around the home, 4 bedrooms, just him and his wife and sheis a principal and school teacher(of 50 kids in the entire school K-8). I'm raising 3 kids(did have4 but thatone is 28)and on VA Comp, my only income. He only has to support one child because one is 18 and one the other isn't his. How much should I get do you think? If I got $200 I'd be tickled pink. I'm 48, probably older than most on this list. I've been raising kids for 28 yrs. Only one person ever commented on my last e-mail.

    Fortunately for you, Washington state tends to be very diligent about

    issuing child support once they're aware there's a need. (There may

    not necessarily be a want...something I went round and round with them

    on!)



    If I remember correctly, the monies granted are based on income

    received by the non-custodial parent, not assets. So the

    house/cars/etc won't likely factor in much. As far as how much, it's

    really hard to say. If your ex has a good lawyer (or doesn't make much

    money himself), you may be lucky to get $165 a month. If he decides to

    just do the right thing, you could get over $400.



    Your best bet would be to go to this website:

    http://www1.dshs.wa.gov/dcs/ and start the process.



    Good luck!

    I live in Washington State....My ex-husband made around 65,000 6 years ago when we divorced. I made $35,000. We did joint custody. Me 51% him 49% because it cannot be 50/50. He was told to pay me over $500 a month I deviated from state requirements for him to pay me....I asked for 350 a month. Now if we were to go back to re-evaluate I am not sure what woudl happen....he makes around $75,000 I make around $70,000. He wines being poor because of child support although his mom basically gave him a $250,000 house for $70,000. His girlfreind is always telling her family (and it gets back to me) that they are gonna take me back to court so he deosnt have to pay child supoort. I do not worry as #1 I have documented over time that it is basically 90/10 as if she has a sporting event or whatever on his days...I take her. I have her if there is somethign she needs to attend etc. Because she is on elite sports teams that is almost all weekends...I WILL hold him to court orders we signed with th divorce..and is Washington state law...that fathers of divorced children are required to pay 1/2 college educations...we shall see...he can take a loan out on his expensive house if ya ask me....Thankfully it has all been just "talk" and nothing has become of it...I do not worry as I do not count on the money anyways..

    Char...

    It depends on his income....noton what he has in the way of possessions (since he is married with 2 incomes).

    Washington from my understanding has one of the best records for collecting child support (garnishing wages, tax returns, bank accounts, etc).

    For more information, I would contactthe State of WA Division ofChild Support in Olympia(WA State Support Registry may bethrough the Department of Social & Health Services).

    You are talking about welfare here and not child support. In most cases

    child support is based on BOTH parents income. Google Washington state Child

    Support Guidelines and that will give you a rough estimate.



    Fortunately for you, Washington state tends to be very diligent about

    issuing child support once they're aware there's a need. (There may

    No, it does not sound like she resents what the ex has. She wants him to be

    financially responsible for THEIR children

    Hello. We have learned that we are increasing our family size (expecting multiples. Just not sure how many as yet).

    We already have a 2 year old. We are wondering what are some of the best ways to handle the expenses related to having more kids - all at once? We got a great deal on a bed for our son today. (He will be leaving his crib and moving into a "big boy" bed). We already have a couple of cribs for the new arrivals.

    We have decided that the new arrivals will not be attending daycare anytime soon. Ridiculously expensive. Not happening. Fortunately, we already have a minivan. We do need to get new carseats (not something to get used). We went out briefly looking at a few the other day.

    Any other tips are welcome. We are positive there are at least two children coming this way. There may be three.

    Thanks for your suggestions, hints, ideas and prayers.

    If there are three or more start looking for help friends and family that wouldn&#39;t mind helping for free. If you don&#39;t already get on the mailing lists of diapers etc so you can get coupons and stock up on those things .

    Watch freecycle for highchairs, clothes, etc.

    OK, first you need to call the hospital and ask about the car seats.

    Here if you have a baby and you don't have a car seat to take the new

    baby home in they will give you one. Since it is law to have one.

    Now this would depend on also if you have insurance. You don't want

    to pay out of pocket for a car seat at the hospital. You will pay

    200% more, knowing hospital prices these days.



    If you are having multiples, I am not sure about twins, yet for

    triplets, if you get ahold of a lot of these major companies, they may

    help you with diapers and other items also. You can write to all of

    the companies and ask, the worst they can say is no.



    Also get online and go to the three major formula sites Similac,

    Enfamil, and Nestle. You register with them as a mother to be. You

    register your friends up as well. They send out free cans of formula

    and they send you checks in the mail for formula also. When my girl

    was born I had over $200 worth of formula already in my pantry.



    The good thing is that you can use the large checks at Sam's to buy

    the huge cans of formula. Since it is a check and not a coupon they

    must take it.



    Sign up for samples of diapers. yet make sure you write to these

    companys about your mutliple birth and see if the will give you large

    quantities for free.



    My girl is 4 and so it has been a while for me. Good luck and best wishes!!!!!

    I think you are going to need to be plugged into some good churches with benevolent funds. It's hard enough to have one. Two would be such a blessing but so much more expensive. THREE? YIKES! Do you think there might be a possibility of anyone giving you a baby shower? If so, ask for a diaper shower. Our church gave us a diaper shower with our 2nd daughter and we didn't have to buy diapers for the first 6 months.

    First of all, Congratulations!!! What wonderful news!!!

    My best wishes for you and the babies.

    About the car seats you mentioned. I know our local Insurance Company

    offers new car seats at a discounted price as part of their auto

    insurance plan. The babies must be immediate family members, which of

    course, yours are.

    Freecycle, freecycle, freecyle. Get as much as you can through

    freecycle: clothes, equipment, baby furniture, even diapers.



    Borrow, borrow, borrow. Put the word out to your friends and local

    churches. Send them a list of what you are interested in borrowing.



    For more ideas on cheap baby clothes:

    How to Save Big Money on Baby Clothes

    http://www.ehow.com/how_2237468_save...y-clothes.html



    Sometimes the clothes we get free have a few stains on them. I

    combine dishwashing detergent and Clorox 2 to get them out. It works

    really, really well. if you want to know more go to:



    How to Get Stains Out of Baby Clothes

    http://www.ehow.com/how_2237454_stai...y-clothes.html



    CVS, CVS, CVS (and/or Walgreens, and/or Rite Aid). It is amazing to

    me how cheap you can get things at these drugstores if you regularly

    take advantage of their special customer loyalty programs. I

    recently brought home 30 packs of diapers for a net cost of -$63.90.

    Yes, you read that right. Walgreens paid me money to take 30 packs

    of diapers home! Now these kinds of deals don't happen often.

    Usually, I can get diapers for $3.XX a pack. But these diaper/wipes

    deals only come around every few months. For help with this check

    out:

    How to Save Big Money on Free Groceries at Walgreens

    http://www.ehow.com/how_2245333_big-...ree-groceries-

    walgreens.html



    Baby food is outrageously expensive. If you can manage to make your

    own that is by far the cheapest. But even if you can't you can save

    a lot of money by being creative. The grocery store carries plenty

    of items in the non-baby aisles that can easily work as baby food

    such as canned sweet potatoes or jarred applesauce. More ideas here:



    How to Save Big Money on Groceries: 75% off Baby Food!

    http://www.ehow.com/how_2227608_mone...baby-food.html



    Formula is the hardest thing to save money on. If you can manage it,

    breastfeed as long as possible. Mother's milk is the

    cheapest "formula" by far! Sometimes people have leftover formula.

    You could request it on freecycle. If you're using the drugstore

    loyalty programs to the max you can get pretty good discounts on

    formula there. More ideas here:

    Triplets????!!!!!! Pray!!!!



    LOL - in truth - ask for help... from everyone and everywhere.... you will

    need it, but things will be OK.



    My friends had three boys under 5 already when she had triplets. Two more

    boys and a girl. They bought the ancient Suburban and did the diaper bag

    shuffle.... Coming to church, they brought in one toddler, one car seat, one

    diaper bag and dumped that set with someone. Went back to the car and got

    another set.... Lather, rinse repeat. They lived in a two bedroom

    apartment with wall to wall cribs. Parents, friends, relatives all helped

    get them a house, cribs, etc....



    These kids are now fully grown. The girl was SPOILED ROTTEN (five brothers

    = no hand me downs, her own room, and LOTS of girl friends (who wanted to

    hang out with the five good looking brothers)) They survived and their mom

    became the most organized woman in the world.
