The divorce is final. No spousal support. I waived about $80 a month in child support because at the moment it would be a hardship (this can change later). XWW was extremely cooperative.. give her some points for that. She accepted everything I suggested (that I considered fair). Only asked me to change one small thing while we were talking about it.

I have ~79% custody and final say in legal decisions according to our current parenting plan (but we're required to discuss major decisions). The plan will be renegotiated in 6 months.

No spousal support. We keep whatever property we have in our separate accounts and in our physical possession. We are responsible for our own student loans.

Who would have been paying spousal and child support to whom?

Sounds like how things fell out for me too.

So how are you feeling?

I would potentially have had to pay spousal support to her, since I make several times as much as she does. Calculated child support was her paying me $80 a month but I requested that it be reduced to $0 for the time being since she makes almost no money.

I'm doing OK I guess. I feel a little shocked. Maybe like things are more open now, I'm more independent. A little sad maybe. Mostly I just have a sense of lots of things changing, which can be a little bewildering.

Including the car thing. Researching a good used car for around $6k takes a lot of work.

Congrats. Do something nice for yourself-- you don't need to "celebrate," but you are starting a NB. I hope you can mark it by doing something more fun than used car research.

Congrats and welcome to your NB.
