So he doesnt pay any support because he is on SSI? (sorry I dont know the rules). I would again try to apply for child support (if you havent already).
He seems to have things easier bc he does have this side job and is living on his dad's property. And it doesnt seem fair. I agree my ex lives with a roomate, and I have our old apartment. He makes more $$ then me and pays $400 a month to live with his roomate. I pay $600 alone in rent.
I wouldnt try to keep him from your DC, but I wouldnt be driving 8 hrs for him to see her either. Especially if he isnt helping you with money because you got in a fight. That is just stupid. He doesnt sound very responsible.
Well I am new to here and newly a single mom. DB and I were only together for a few months before I got pregnant with DS who just turned 5. We were together up until May of this year. So it's still all new to me. DS's dad is very involved in his life (thank goodness) but we still have our issues and things to sort through. He wasnt happy about the break up and still tries to get back together but I know that there is no hope. I am still adjusting to not having DS around all the time. And he is quite ornery these days, dealing with his dad being gone. But I am just taking it one day at a time and hoping for the best.View Thread
