Okay...so my husbands daughters mother (I hate the phrase baby's mama) has gone to child support and is requesting more money (we got the letter from child support yesterday) as of right now Richie is paying her $500 a month. I guess she's requesting $200 more.
Okay....I don't have a problem with America (that's her name) asking for more money, she has a child with him and it is his responsibility to take care of his child, what is bugging me is that America has not allowed Rich to see his daughter in almost a year now...the last time we seen her was at our wedding last June. Rich will call her and ask if he can see her, his mother will call and ask if we can see her, his brother will call and ask if we can see her...nothing, she either says yes and that she will call later and then no one will hear from her for weeks, her phone will just ring and ring and on several occasions has been cut off completly or she will tell us flat out no. On the times that she's told us no it has been because Richie didnt give her any additional money...she asked him to buy Mazzy (his daughter, age 8) some school clothes and backpack, ect....well he just didnt have the money at the time so she texts him and tells him how lame he is and how he won't EVER see Mazzy again, how he doesnt do shit for her and all this other stuff....I don't understand why she can say all this but she won't let him see Mazzy ever!
Is something wrong with this picture? Is there something we can do? He's going to court next month to ask for joint custody but it seems like she shouldnt be able to do this.

When she goes for more child support, he needs to go in and see about visitation. Let the judge know that your step-daughter's mom will not let you guys see her because she is upset that you got married. Good luck.
