Okay ladies, so my ex and I have been going thru a divorce since august and in the divorce papers, of course, he left out Child Support. So I went ahead and filed it on my own. Then he was making me feel so terrible about it that I said I would close the case...Um I didn't because after thinking it thru, it is his obligation to help with his child! Right? So I left it alone and he said nothing else about it but that when will it go thru and well it's not quite finalized yet. But I have been struggling and i told myself that I would NEVER let him see that I struggle being a single mom and well he has been giving me $50 dollars a week since he filed for the divorce, grant it that we have been seperated and back and forth since 2004 and not once gave me a penny, but now that there is a divorce he wants to look good right! Anyway, I got laid off a GREAT paying job in March and I just got a new job in August that pays way less. So I gave in and I asked him for help to pay our son's school and that I was short on my rent. I told him I will pay him back next fri, so he helped of course without running his mouth about it and asking a bunch of questions. Well this morning he asked me if I had closed the Child Support case yet and I said um no, So he sends me a txt that just made me realize what a mistake I made asking him for help, it said " Now you're taking it back? You are worthless and I hope things get worse for you. Have a nice life idiot..." WTF! I guess I am just being hard on myself, but dang ladies it feels terrible. I learned my lesson! Im not being a greedy, golddigger am I, I mean I have never heard of any regular womand be able to live off child support, right? my son is entitled to have both his parents take care of him.
