  • Take him back to court. My ex has to pay half of all medical bills. Its time to update your case. Every two years you can take him back to court.

  • oh- yeah- we're ok...just a reference to a previous question
    nothing dramatic
    she did it- she really did it- she called her ass hole bio who she's had no contact with since birth and asked for- are you ready for this- $1500 (half the cost of braces) cause he needs to step up and, if not parent then at least acknowledge a growing financial obligation to her and her brother...
    she needs braces- they need a vehicle (they're willing to share) and then there's college to think about.

    He pays $207 a month for two kids (based on 1996 minimum wage).
    She had a very intelligent, articulate- non emotional based conversation with him.

  • I am so very proud of her!
    she didn't talk about the alleged sexual assault by his dad (if he is uncooperative she will ask why he picked his dad aver her and her brother)
    she kept it very civil despite all of her rage, anger, betrayal and abandonment issues
    I think if he is willing to accept his responsibilities he could have a very fulfilling relationship with an awesome person

  • I decided a long time ago to not ask for a review of CS, because he was leaving us alone. Kind of an out of site out of mind type of situation.
    But after how rough this year has been and because the kids are older I began talking to them and allowed them to give input on whether or not to get it reviewed.
    Also advised them that if we did this there may be contact- and so it begins.
