So my ex was supposed to be paying support to my son to help with college expenses. I am paying him support too, but I'm actually really paying. Ex paid 3 months then stopped. I notice this when I looked at my son's bank statement one day this summer. I called the lawyer, and today I get an email from the lawyer with a copy of the response my ex finally gave after months of trying to get him to settle this out of court. The lawyer finally sent him a court date, and magically the ex decides to respond. His excuse? He stopped paying because he has no proof that my son is actually going to college. REALLY! WOW! Did he ever ask for proof? NO. Does he think his son is a liar? What does he think his son is doing in 2000 miles away from home? PICKING HIS NOSE? All he needs to do is go to the school's web site. My son is listed as a member of 2 of the bands there. The school shows web casts of the performances, he could SEE his son on the computer screen. He could, I don't know, Skype with his son and have his son take him on a tour of the school. OH MY FREAKING GOD!!!!! I hate him SOOO much!
So the question is, how would you deal with this? Would you email the ex and say I call bull crap, you have plenty of ways you can "verify" your son is in college. Or do I just let the lawyer handle it, and ignore his ass?

If the EX want the son to give him Paper proof to get his support. Send him some papers proving he is in school. I do understand the EX. I would probably be the same. But I would have at least told the 18 yo to send me proof or you will not get any money. Would want it every 3 to 6 months.
