Exs girlfriend asked if they could pay less child support since she is having a baby now. UPDATE - spoke to ex
My ex pays child support although we agreed on an amount that fitted both our budgets not the full amount I am technically entitled too.
Today when she dropped the kids off she asked if she could come in and talk for a couple minutes. Not a huge deal I figure something had happened with the kids over the weekend. Nope she actually asked if since they are having a baby of their own if they could pay less each month. I told her I would have to think about it.
I am not really sure how to react. Part of me is pissed just because he is having another baby doesn't mean he doesn't have to honor his responsibilities to his current children and part of me understands babies/kids cost money.
How would you react? I am pretty surprised SHE had the audacity to ask me not him! UPDATE I spoke to my EX this morning - he did NOT know that she was asking me this. He said it is something they had discussed but he wasn't going to ask me. He also said that they had planned on asking if we could make some changes to the custody schedule once the baby is born to allow the kids more time with their new sibling. Which I am totally ok with - I want my kids to have a relationship with their half sibling. I told him that for me to take a cut in child support just isn't feasible right now but I am happy to work with him to make the changes as easy as possible for everyone involved. He said he would talk to GF about it and agreed that she was out of line to approach me about it.
