When Is Enough Enough With Child Support
My husband always paid 350.00 a month child support and kept all medical on his child. For ten years it was this way. When we got married last year, that next month, he had to send in pay-stubs for a modification. We found out later that his ex wife had ordered this. His support was raised to 550.00 a month. Now, he pays this, carries all medical, and still the ex will have the daughter ask him for summer clothes, school clothes, money for driving school, money to get her hair and nails done, and as far as putting her on his car insurance because it will raise hers too high. Yes, her mother has made her very materialistic as to where we cannot afford to cover all of the maintenance.
He will even have to leave work for doctor appointments because the ex can't make it, although she works nights. We know it is so she won't be asked to pay a copay. How far can she go with this? She herself is remarried with another child, she does work, although we are sure her employer pays her mostly under the table, because his papers only showed her making 3000.00 for the year. He was under the assumption that this was child supports doings, so he did not contest to it. Now we know different. He is not, and never has been a dead beat dad, but is he obligated to pay all the extras?
