So here's my issue..
my ex once upon a time, took me to court.. Lost, got evow and a shared holidays.. And decided he wanted to start paying child support(she was 4, by the way..). 5 years later, he decides he's having some money issues and wants to cut the child support by more than half the original amount(that amount was determined by him and his attorney, I didn't argue, something was better than nothing). I find it ridiculous that he would even ask, considering he just came back from Florida(family vacation my daughter didn't attend), then idaho( another vacation she didn't attend), just renewed his family's Disney passes, a Vegas trip, and recently showed off his 3 day pack for coachella... The list can go on..
i don't want to be an asshole.. And tell him no, because we've gotten past all of our drama, and are finally in a place where we are all good friend.. But I feel like my daughter is being taken advantage of. It seems like he is cutting the one thing that he should consider last.
by the way, he is still living at home at his parents(rent free) house with his gf( who also works)and son.. Yet makes practically double our income..
anyway.. How do I tell him nicely, that I have no problem with cutting the child support down, but 75% of it, is just not cool... Especially when he has all of these perks that I feel could be cut from is budget easily first...
Excuse the typos and bad grammar I'm mobile...
gotta pick up my kids.. Be back in in 20..
