just wondering....

How a man ( my ex husband - the father of my 3 kids) can have a fiance who doesn't work but yet can drive a 2009 big diesel truck and she can drive a 2010 chevy traverse, they can live in a HUGE house that they just built on 3 acres of land, how he can buy her desinger clothes, and nice jewelry.... BUT can't pay the $50/ week in child support ...

Maye it makes me a little jealous that they are buying those things, but honestly I just want to know WHY he can do this.

  • I would get the child support re-evaluated

  • have you taken him back to court, or notified the court of his non-payment?
    also, they may be buying these things on wouldn't be that unheard of.

  • Did she get an inheiritence or anything? Look into getting the CS re-eval'd. Sorry, I would be upset too.

  • Maybe the fiance is sitting on a large amount of money and they are spending all her money instead of his and he just doesn't want to take the responsibility of CS.

  • I would drag his butt back to court with a lawyer and make him pay alot more! It sounds like this amount was what he said he would pay. It seems way too low!!! They r his kids too!!! Make him pay!!!

  • He wont pay $50, i am afriad to spend money just to have them say he has to pay more when he wont.... b

    but I KNOW for sure she doesnt have a dime to her name... we live in a very small town and her family is one of the trashiest in town... she was living in a trailor with her mom and 4 other people before they built this house ...

    He has a VERY good job and I know he makes alot ( he started working there right before we got a divorce)

  • Well in my state if he refuse to pay they will garnish his pay checks, takes his drivers license, & when he files taxes that money would go to you. Like the other ladys stated take his ass back to court!ASAP

  • Because his child and their well being isn't as important as his fancy life. Period.
