Made my last child support payment yesterday. While most ,and myself, would think that I would be overjoyed ,that is not the case. I am relieved, but fight the bitterness that tries to take hold. After paying at least twenty five percent of my take home income for over a decade, to another household that had an income greater than my own,has made it a struggle to remain sane . I watched as the other couple took numerous vacations ,bought campers and toys etc...i sought out and worked overtime so I could experience a somewhat normal lifestyle. I bought and paid for things I should of never had to,but refused to make my kids victims of circumstance. When I took the order stopping support to my local clerks office, which has bullet proof glass and security, I was questioned and berated. I never missed a single payment.i was never late one time. I finally stated that here is an order signed by a judge,are you going to process it? I then walked out and called my attorney. A question was raised if the order was proper. In the end I prevailed and owe nothing more. The prosecutor did say he didn't understand why I experienced what I did,but offered no apology or explanation. I am moving on and determined not to get bitter, I will not let this experience ruin me.
