Lets get a Divorce so we can get more Money from Welfare! Update

Posted by   + Show Post

They have mediation on Monday and are supposed to come to an agreement on custody of their oldest. If they can't then the judge will decide for them the Monday after. I hope she wins this...

That is what my sil's soon to be ex said to her. They separated a year ago when their dd was 1 1/2 and she was pregnant with their second. She's been wanting to work it out but he's being super flaky, flip flopping around. One minute saying yes they'll get back together then filing for divorce and suing for custody of their 2yo the next.

His latest scheme was on Valentines day. He told her he had a surprise for her. She was all excited! So he calls and tells her that he still loves her and wants to be with her and be a family again. *She swoons* Then he says "But I still want a divorce and custody of the oldest." "We can still be together but this way we'll get more money from Welfare." His reasoning is, she gets 650 for both kids. But if they split the kids, they'll each get 520 and he won't have to pay child support.

Welfare fraud at it finest....She said hell no, I'll see you in court then hung up on him. What a shitty Valentines day :-(

IDK.  I just kept thinking how pitiful they were.  SMH

Is it really worth it??

Quoting opal10161973:

When I was 18, I knew a middle aged couple that was doing that.  They lived together, but they had divorced, just so they could get more money in PA, etc.  Since she was the custodial parent, he had to have his stuff sent to another address and if they ever had someone come to the house for whatever reason, he had to leave and go to a friend's house.  It was some fuckery, let me tell you.

He doesn't need custody at all. He needs to get off his lazy ass and support his family.


men like this make me glad I"m single.

I was in school full-time and the benefits I was receiving were not enough to pay the bills so I asked her how to increase the amount. She told me that the only way to increase what I was already getting was to have another baby. Only, the way she told me was seriously like she expected me to go right out and get pregnant again. (FYI, as soon as I discovered I was pregnant, I chose to be celibate for 10 years until I married my husband of twelve years. I did not want to expose my child to a revolving door of men in and out of her life). So, I left school just shy of a degree and went to work. I finally got the degree in 2009 and my child is now a sophomore in college herself.

If they divorce and live a part then no. But I think he wants to live with her and just claim different addresses.
