paying my ex?

My ex told me he cannot afford to take visits and that he needs me to give him money when he picks up our son for visitation. I think this is asking something that is unfair. It is not my responsibility to fund his visits. Opinions?

I would do it, but that is because my son would want to see his father.

I would ask him how he is managing to keep himself fed and clothed if he iss too poor to spend time with his child.

Ask specifically what he needs money for. Ifhe needs groceries, buy him some food. Anything else he most likely doesn't need.

Just day visits? Or overnight...

If they are day visits I would says here's 2 tickets to the movies and I packed his lunch...here's a gift card for 2 games of bowling and I ordered a pizza

I wouldn't be giving him cash..

While i agree that it's a dumb demand...wondering how most ladies would think it the ex was a woman? Ive heard of judges awarding CS to women in 50/50 situations because the homes and way of life need to be equal.

I wouldn't give him money, but I would send my child with a sack lunch and snacks.
