Parents should remember 3 things: Love your kids more than you hate your ex; when you have children the relationship with the other parent is until death; your children determine what type of nursing home you end up in.
Nothing stated by me should be taken as giving you legal advice or forming an attorney/client relationship.
Attorney-GAL in Ohio.
I've removed the knife from my back, polished it, and will one day return it -- long after you think I have forgotten.
We asked you what your timeshare was. You answered with exactly half.
Neither ones of your responses actually answered the questions asked. I you think its none of our business, then take your questions to a local attorney to whom you can provide the necessary information to get you the info you need.
The agreement was technically not from the judge but the judge told both lawyers that if it went to court he was going to use the charts which said 25% for both kids. She agreed to slightly less than that amount so i had not choice but to agree.
OP went through mediation.
The ex didn't like how things were going in mediation, so it went to the court.
The current order is based on that. OP wants to sue out at the ex and the mediator - so the ex was correct to conclude that she was in a no win situation in mediation.
OP was represented by legal counsel; OP was not pro se. OP also wanted to stiff his previous lawyer when the lawyer became sick and was unable to continue representing him.
The fact that this is not a mediated agreement, but one determined by the courts means that there is a legal basis, and state guidelines were applied. Should OP wish for a downward modification, he has to prove a change of circumstance. If there has been no change of circumstance, then any petition for child support modification is a waste of the court's time.
OP needs therapy (there is a lot of anger here).
