my husband doesn't think the judge will order his ex wife to pay child support. He thinks she will play her victim role and the judge will not make her pay anything.
they already got a divorce and he said he didn't want anything from her(he was making $75,000/yr then). and the judge agreed to that-- strange, same county and my sis said she wanted nothing from her son's father and the judge didn;t agree and made him pay some small amount like $25/wk.
so, hubs lost that job, and we have gone without lights for a day at a time, twice. He had to get his son on free/reduced lunch at school... even when he started making OK money, the bankruptcy was taking $350/wk, so our family of 4 was living off of $800 a month. I say she needs to pay child support.
her situation is that she has no real home, she goes from boyfriend to boyfriend to daughter and back around again, and that she is 51 yrs old.... hubs is 33, they were together like 15 yrs, yeah, do the math, she "married" him when he was 17 and she was 35. he thinks they will feel sorry for this "poor old lady", and we will just end up wasting time and money pursuing this. Anybody have any experience similar? should we try to get some child support?
