    One In Particular Comes to Mind

    My stepson's mother has not had any custody for 9 months. She has also not paid a dime of child support. Legally, she has not been ordered to pay, but I don't think that's an excuse for not caring for your child. It's frustrating.

    P.t.s.d Daddy

    He was an ex-Army boy with nightmares that rivaled my own. In a life not without it's hardships, we were fast friends and even faster lovers. Rebound relationships often burn brightly, but they burn out fast. It wasn't long until he started cheating on me, and I should have seen...

    He Makes Me Sick

    My ex is pretty much in the category of a deadbeat dad. John rarely picks up the phone to call our son and see how he is doing and he has the audacity to be late on his measly $84.00 a month child support. Meanwhile he is married with three other children he cant support, his...

    My Step-daughter's Biological Mother Is The World's Biggest Deadbeat. That's A Nice Way Of Putting It.

    I met and married a man with a daughter who shares my name, my heart and my home. We have full custody. I call her daughter, and treat her as such (being adopted myself, it matters little to me who gave birth to whom). Her mother left her for some guy she met playing...
