When DH and I got custody of SD, DH did not request that BM be ordered to pay CS because at the time she was pregnant, not working, being evicted etc. he just wanted custody without a fight or drama.
We recently found out that she has been staying at casinos and enjoying 'the good life' ... DH and I can more than support SD, but it bothers DH that she doesn't help with SD and he's been considering asking the lawyer to petition for support from BM. I told him that if that's the decision he wants to make then it's one he needs to make himself and that I support whatever he decides to do. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned about the potential for drama from BM but I do in my heart feel like if she can afford to do all these things then she can afford to at least help support SD. BUT that's for DH to decide if he wants to go down that path.
Have any of y'all been through this before? How did it turn out?
