It wouldn't matter how little they paid, they'd still complain it was too much of "their' money to fork out (even though it is for their kid!)
And it would not matter how little you receive by way of CS payments, it is still essential for bare minimum living costs.
You must work though your feelings on this issue so that you can manage on what you DO have, and be proud of how much you acheive despite the lack of support from you child's other parent.
If you have energy to burn on this one, fight for the common good of all kids receiving less than adequate support from their other parents, but don't let the stress of one man hurt you to often.
Besides, when you raise your kids and love them, they know in their hearts who is the nicest one in their lives...
Just because they have one dosn't mean they have to be one.
