    Maybe One Day?

    My ex sends me money when he thinks that he's somehow bribing me to come back to him. I recently asked him if there was ANY way he could help me fix my car, as it's currently not driveable and the repair is estimated to be $2500. His response?? "If you want me to...

    From Neither Father

    My daughter Lachlan's father doesn't even know she exists so I can't blame hi,  for not paying.  But I bet he wouldn't if he knew.  The father of my twins, which will be born sometime in the next two weeks, bailed out on us.  I mean he left the state...

    I used to pay her more

    than the required amount when I was obligated to, and now she owes me child support but she flat out refuses to pay it. She also won't disclose her income for the purpose of calculating it.

    A Vindictive Miser

    I left my control-freak husband when I lost all trust in him. By that time he knew that the only way he could hurt me was by using our daughter as his 'weapon'. There then followed a nightmare 4-year long fight to get a divorce. He says he loves our daughter more than anything...

    You Would Think I Would Get Over It By Now

    My ex left me and my boys to move to Europe to work, in 2004.  What he failed to do at that time was to make sure that he had a job to go to.  It turns out he is an alcoholic.  He has been very sporatic in keeping in touch with his 2 sons, my sons.  He has...

    My daughters father paid

    for about 3 years. When she turned 11 he stopped being any type of father to her. No calls, no visits, nothing. I have a great father & brother who have been excellent roll models for her, thank goodness. I even told my daughters father I'd ask the judge to lessen some of what...

    He was also my abuser.

    So I'm still afraid, after all these years, to take him to court. He has threatened me before, about leaving him. I keep hoping that he would change, stupid, I know. But I don't know what else to do. He's not in my baby's life and claim he wants to do better. I've heard it all...
