No because what he's making now is comparable to what he was making when we divorced.



It could have been lowered when he was going to school full time but he didn't want to do it

I can't work because of our son he is SN with autism, ADHD, behavioral disorder, possibly OCD and anxiety.



I need a job with a very open schedule where I can drop everything in an instant rush to the school within 10 minutes if he gets suspended or is having a hard day.



As we know that doesn't exist unless you work for yourself so yeah. No job for me. I gave up my license and pretty much a life to stay on call for him.

Hearing loss is a seriously real thing. I know. I was more talking about scars. That's silly.



They denied my ex for tinnitus. He's most definitely deaf.

does your son get disability to help offset the cost since you can't work?

No. That's why my ex compensates me do much. We both would like him to over come his disability without labeling him legally disabled.



Plus I don't think they factor just my income which is zero. For disability I think they factor the whole family income. Which is higher then the limit to be qualified as disabled.

We dont get any SSI or SSDI for my son either and he has some of the disorders you mentioned. An E6 in the military makes enough to cover all our bills according to the state of CA. And yes all of our essential bills and wants our covered but we could do so much more on a 2 person income. If we lived on base we'd make $60 a month in SSDI.

Yeah if they take into account my husbands income and my child supports it far exceeds the limit. I need to work to help out and help pay for my sons problems and medications and other things. But it's not going to happen.



He's been suspended 4 times this school year for behavior and I've had to rush to school about 6 times. Having a real job is out of the question. A career never going to happen.



And his real dad? Doesn't even care. He only sees him 2 days a month now because of swimming lessons for physical therapy. He doesn't call and won't give me numbers to reach him. He couldn't pay for his insurance or meds and neither could we without help. So we had to switch him to state. At least there his counseling is covered.
