I guess I wasn't too clear in all of this... this problem just started. November 7th was our last day in court and that is when the amount of child support was determined. We have paid the negative balance that was present in the account so not to affect their lunch accounts in the future.
We are by no means upset with having to pay $2.60 x 2 per week, but it definitely isn't something we've budgeted for since my husband has been laid off work for the past 4 months. On the days we take the kids to school that the parenting time switches back to her at 9am, we make sure the kids have a lunch. We send them off into the world prepared for the day. Maybe I'm just frustrated because it seems to be such a double standard.
If that is the law and lunches are supposed to fall under eaches parenting time, which is something they never specified, then we are more than willing to abide by it. My husband went back to court regarding child support because he thought it would end up being reduced, not in a million years did he think he would end up getting child support.
I want my step children to be happy and healthy, that is all. And like I said, we will be taking a lunch to the school for them in the morning even though we don't see them until 4:30pm after school. I just question why there is a double standard? And all of a sudden?
I didn't mean to ruffle so many feathers or come off the way I did... I apologize.
