    Shared Custody

    We share custody, our son is with me one week and with his dad the next week. I carry the insurance and we are supposed to split the expenses. I hate this arrangement but it seems to be working so far. As much as I hate to admit it a boy does need his dad. It seems like ex uses...

    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...

    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...

    I am owed over 10,000 dollars in child support and retroactive he owes me more than that the bas@#^& does not want to pay. I was told if I file federal charges he might not be able to get a job again and that will hurt my chances. The state he lived in previously hid him out for...

    I just received a letter regarding my

    daughter's emancipation due to her graduating high school. My case had been ceased years ago because of the defendant's "inability" to pay. The arrears up to that point in time are still intact, as far as I know. Can he still be held liable to pay even after she turns 18? I've...

    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.
