I'm legally married but seperated now a year. My darling husband left us (kids & I) and moved with another woman and her kids. I never call him however; yesterday he called the house to speak to our boys (miracle) and in a civil tone of voice I said " I never call you, bother you or ask you for anything however; the kids really need to go to get reg. physicals, see a dentist, they need clothes because they are growing like crazy and need money for extra activities. I pay all the big bills and I don't have the extra for co pays, activities etc". His answer "well I'm going to tell you right now I don't have the money". I'm like I know you have worked on and off for 8 mths and you don't have a dime. I filed for child support and it can take up to a year - what help. So, how do I stop thinking/getting upset about this whole thing? He thinks he's hurting me & he's hurting our kids. Your honest advice is appreciated.
I would hope you see the light and are moving on. I say, give the child support time and hopefully that works. File for divorce. I don't understand why people do this, but you aren't alone. Know you are setting a good and strong example for your kids and do the best you can. I'd also see if you qualify for any type of assistance Don't be to proud to ask for it, and ask others for help. You sound hard working and are doing the parenting for 2. I hope it gets better.

Divorce him and get some child supportout of him. I would tell him don't call the house any more. Scene he won't help financially. That you don't want to talk to him or see him
