I'm new to this community and I need your help. First here is a bit of background. My parents had me at 16 and got married at 17 they divorced 10 years later. I'm now 25, 26 a week from today, and about to graduate from law school. My parents had a horrible divorce and it was hard on my brother and me. One of the most horrible things was that my dad paid a ton of child support but none of it ever seemed to benefit my brother and me. As a result, I've been writing my final Law School research paper on child support. I need stories from adult children of divorce who were supposed to be receiving support from their non-custodial parent. Specifically I'd like to know if you think the child support was used on you or if it was used by your parent and you saw very little of it. I'd appreciate any stories you can give and of course if you let me use your story I won't use your name and or reference this sight.
Thanks so much for your help
