Wishing For a Child’s Checkbook. Katie Gonzolez is the mother of four, and a stay-at-home mom before her divorce. Her ex-husband, who earned six figures, stopped paying child support, after she agreed to waive alimony, bringing her — and her attorney Michelle MacDonald —back to court, even though their divorce decree prohibited it. Katie believes the child support system is no help to either parent. As a supporter of Family Innocence, Katie advocates the “Children’s Checkbook” idea, where parents contribute money to a shared bank account to use for their children’s budgeted and extraordinary expenses. Katie, who works in the mortgage industry, is well-suited separated families support their children together.
