I feel like a large part of child support is intended to help the kid out developmentally. Sure, it's better than nothing, and you may have handled the upbringing without a problem, but, man, that's nothing like ideal.

Haha no kidding. Luckily for me, I was earning enough money during the period where no payments were coming that it didn't affect our lifestyle unduly. My kid was still able to participate in developmental activities, and I had always planned to give him half the money and have him clothe himself and pay for his own haircuts, snacks, going out etc. Instead I paid for that stuff, and now I'm getting paid back 7 years later and my kid just got the bond for his new flat.

It isn't ideal, but it kind of works and given I'd been expecting to never see the money, I'm also pretty amazed that it's happening at all.
