I don't get it

The judge just granted my son's father overnight access on weekends.
My son is almost 8, never had overnight access with him. His father lives off of $150 a month after his rent. How the hell is he going to feed and clothe my son every weekend?

Are you planning in sending him naked? Maybe he doesn't count clothing him as one of his expenses...and food for a few days a month won't be that expensive

As long as he can figure that out, it's fine. If you are really worried, have your son bring clothes with him.

Why would they order me to pay CS? I have custody, he just has access.

He tells me all the time that there is never any food in his house. Ever.

Oh, I don't know, so he has enough money to feed your child when he has him?

Well first, I am a SAHM.
Second, he has NEVER helped support our son. Ever. If he wants oovernight access it's HIS responsibility to feed my son, just like it has been my responsibility to feed my son for the last 8 years.

Well if the judge knows his financial situation don't you think maybe he believes your son will be fine?

I'd bring over groceries to ensure my kid was fed. Is it fair no. But not having money doesn't mean someone should be denied the right to be a parent. Other than being broke is he a good father?

Lol. Ok. If it was my child going over there, I'd make sure he ate regardless if whose "responsibility" it was. But thats because I care about my son more than I care about having a pissing match with his dad.
