Me and my ex have two kids together, he is remarried (as am I ) and he has 2 kids with his new wife. His wife stopped working after she had their first child, he was just fired (apparently, he was calling off too much) and so now they are living off of his unemployment. He called to tell me that the child support won't be coming until he gets a new job and they get back on their feet. He said that our kids have both of us, his kids have only his income so they should come first, I think that's crap because his child support only covers his half of providing for them and his wife could get a job too. But anyway, I know I am not going to get blood from a turnip so I said, that's fine but reminded him he will have to pay back what he gets behind on eventually (the court order specifically says this and it also says that for a change in income to affect child support, that change has to be in effect for 6 months.). His ex wife called and said he shouldn't ever have to pay the child support he misses because he isn't making the money, I said that doesn't matter, his kids have to eat whether or not he makes money. I told her not to call me anymore, that this is none of her concern.Answer Question

Women get territorial over provisions. She wants her children to come before yours, its natural. Just hold your ground, she knows you're right.
