I have soul custody, he has visitation and we share legal. I pay him Child Support! We were never married and we never lived together. He is currently married with another child. He makes very little money and my income more than triples his. I also carry the health insurance, court ordered. Anyone else out there getting screwed???

Why if you have sole custody are you paying child support??

Apparently it's because he doesn't make enough money to support his current family AND provide for our children when they visit.

THAT IS REALLY STRANGE. MY NIECE AND HER EX BOYFRIEND SHARED EQUAL CUSTODY OF THEIR SON, BUT YET THE FATHER HAD TO PAY HER CHILD CHILD SUPPORT. THEY BOTH HAD JOBS.  TO BE HONEST I DIDNT THINK THAT WAS FAIR FOR HIM. AND IT DEF IS NOT FAIR FOR YOU.

This does not make sense! I have sole custody and make more money then him and he still pays his weekly child support. Some where you got screwed.. Literally!

You pay child support but have full custody? Why would you have to do that? I owuld call another lawyer. I just don't think it's right!

Him supporting another family doesn't have to do with your child support arrangement.

Get a new attorney. That isn't right.

Hi there,
have you consulted an attorney about this?  doesn't sound right/fair for you.
Good luck  :)

What's the visitation order? How many days.


This is unfair. Another reason the family courts need a huge overhaul.
