  • He probably doesn't have it.

  • he probably DID have it then spent it on something stupid and now feels bad about it... do u need the money for your son? if not just let it slide for awhile but let him know that he needs to start pitching in or you'll have to take him to court for child support ??

  • Get court ordered child support and have it taken from his check. There should be no need to talk to each other about money.

  • I wouldn't call him again about it. He obviously doesn't have it anymore, or he would be fine with you calling and asking about it. The court order would be helpful if he is not paying regular child support or helping you with expenses.

  • Take him to court and get a child support order put in place. In our state (Ohio), they generally have the non-custodial parent's check garnished, and then the state pays the custodial parent. This guy doesn't sound very responsible, this way you can make sure your son is getting the support he should be.

  • I wouldn't waste my time calling him again. It sounds as though he gets upset easily. If you don't have a court order for CS I would strongly advice getting one. It may make things easier to deal with when it comes to getting money from him...That way you don't have to call him and ask about any money!

  • It sounds to me like he doesn't have the money.I'm sorry because I know what it's like to count on something & than it not happen.About his's been my experience that he's mad at himself but puts it off on you.You did nothing wrong.Don't call him.wait for him to call & go from there.Goodluck!!!
