Posted by   + Show Post

My s/o pay child support and we have money put to the side so if his kids need money for sports or anything we have it and give it to them. So i have been thinking if i should ask my x (father of my 2 girls) if he could help pay for the girls dance. I do get child support.. NO i am not a money hungry bitch.. The girls love to go to dance class. and usually i dont need help with it unitl like now. When i need to have a down payment for their recital dresses. I have been trying different ways on asking him. A part of me doesn't want to ask him cause i know he will tell me..A) I give you cs B) dont i give you enough. Right now he lives in a diffferent state, but is plaining on moving back here to be closer to the girls...i was thinking about waiting till he moves back to ask... What would you ladies do?shrugging

I'm always paying out of my pocket for most of their things.

Quoting Ms.Maaamaof2:

Just ask!

Child support is a fraction of a childs living expenses and does not include anything extra for a child to have an enjoyment, unless the custodial parent pays out of pocket.

Mine won't give anything extra - he even is claiming he overpaid two months (a year ago so) we get nothing while he fights us over a few hundred dollars - spending thousands on an attorney to do so.  Fucking idiot.

Exactly in just these words and don't take no for a answer you didn't get yourself pregnant Mama...

Quoting savannahmom2011:
