who pays it? who gets it? Is it court ordered or voluntary? Is there a wage lien in place or direct pay?

He pays it per court order plus an additional voluntary chunk to cover medical expenses that weren't covered at trial. He mails it out directly to her. She's not dumb enough to let the courts take it directly from his check. She knows that the courts may lose the money or take forever to send it to her. Gotta love the NYC SEU

Dh pays - send the check directly.

My ex paid nothing when he still had his parental right. But does now send her birthday & Christmas presents.

I get nothing since my oldest turned 18 last year, but he paid direct to me every two weeks for 9 years. We just had that sort of relationship. Neely used to pay by wage lien (not because he wouldn't pay otherwise, but because she's a moron) and we go to court tomorrow to get support from her since the kids have been here since last year. We've received zero in that time.

My ex pays support to me. It's taken out of his check every other week. He doesn't pay what he's supposed to but thats a whole different story.

My DH voluntarily pays CS to his ex-wife, he has it auto deducted into her checking act., not court ordered, just easier, sometimes we just deposit it into her checking act., either way, she always gets paid weekly, never late, always on-time, never been late since I've known my DH.

My ex, pays CS, I had to go to court, it's deducted through court order from his pay stub, sent to the state, then sent to me. It was a forced amount, forced deduction. It's never on-time. I'll leave it at that. And although I get along w/ my ex, I'm not thrilled that he is very uncaring how the CS is not on-time for his son, to me, that should be top priority, but it's not the case, at least from where I sit.

Neither one of us pay or receive.

With my DD her dad and I split the weeks so she is with us equal time and we show receipts if it was a big item we had to get and we split the cost.

With So dd. Part of the divorce was he had to pay her for the house. But since he has their daughter full time she doesn't pay child support so he doesn't have to pay her from the house. It actually works out in our favor.
