    I Was Told By Family Support My Case Has "No Hope"

    My husband walked out when I was seven months pregnant.  After being married for two years I thought at least he would pay child support.  I was very wrong.  I have not seen a time from him in over nine years.  I have an active account with family support...

    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...

    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.

    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...
