You Know The Economy Is Bad When.......

....when a firm hires a Witch to collect bad debt.

.......when our pets start shoplifting.

......when you can't afford to dump the one your with!

 

What signs have you seen that are a sure indicator times are tough?

 I felt a hit last night. Over dinner, we were discussing getting my 10yo a trim. He has a haircut that needs to be maintained often, like every 2 weeks or so. Hubs told me we can't afford the $10, that it's a little much right now. I guess I understand, since I am not getting my normal child support(the ex is laid off). It still really bothered me, though. I hate that the kids may suffer the effects of our poverty, lol (ok, not really poverty, but still)

  This may be to personal but have to ask, does CS where you are automatically get lowered if/when laid off??  I'm asking because my hubby is also laid off and still is required to pay the original amount but he went through the courts..  I know we can have it lowered but we'd have to get "her" served, pay for it, and then wait for the next avail. date.. which is usually a month or 2..  Hopefully by that time, he will no longer be laid off...  So my point was we don't bother getting it temporarily reduced..  Man, I drew that out, LOL

 

 

 

What if all of these rocks we fall on are all just stepping stones??

Where we live, we have to have the other parent summonsed, pay for it out of pocket, then wait for a court date for the modification.  It takes such a long time that we have never chosent o do so.. ;o)

some states i think you can only request a modification every 3 years but maybe due to certain hardships it may be modified.

I believe in California its once every 6 months, but it can often take 4-6 months to even get into the courts, so its sort of a moot point.

California can have it changed whenever there is cause but there has to be proven cause not just a "because I think so" or "because I feel like it." They don't have a timeline on how often you can do it.

I believe each state has a child support agency that is funded through state funds to work on behalf of children to collect child support, get orders, etc. If I were you I would look for your state office because this is a free service as they only deal with child support. They will not deal with the custody issue at all. You have your court order registered with them and then they do all the leg work for it. But it depends on your state.

Willow has attempted grand theft bone. We always taker her into Pet Club with us, and they keep the really smelly open bones right at doggy level. She managed to grab one the size of her head when I wasn't looking. I bought it for her, because I felt too bad to put it back.

I was actually thinking the economy would lead to more divorces. I know several people who lost their job, or their spouse lost a job several months ago and the stress has been to much for their marriages. It's really very sad.
