Fortunately my ex husband pays his child support regularly, and I am thankful for that. I can't stand when I hear men complain about paying child support, it costs so much more than what anyone understands to raise a child when they grow out of clothes and shoes every month, paying for preschool and daycare, doctors appts, not to mention the basics like a place to live, water for baths and food in their bellies. I pay close to $800 a month just in daycare and preschool. Kids are not cheap.
