Doreen, thanks for this article. As someone who raised one child on her own, I can't imagine the financial struggles involved with five children.

It's too bad the comments were hijacked into an argument about streets. Trolls.

Anyway, I've been there. The system is weighted heavily in favour of the less powerful partner, but FRO can help and did help me immensely. I know I didn't receive everything that was owed to me, based on Federal guidelines, but had to let it go in the end for my own sanity.

I can't state "facts" about all men, but I've lived through, and heard a sufficient number of stories, to know that good, responsible men are not commonly found in cases of divorce with child support required. Yes, women can be dickheads too, but my interactions have found it's mostly the other way around.

I hope you can get the restitution that is owed to you. If not, life does go on and your children will realize who did the heavy lifting for them. And he may never realize why his children don't give him the respect he thinks he deserves.
