See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Ok so my bd has refused to take me to court to establish parenting plan. I used to let him see his daughter whenever he wanted but he kept messing with her by coming in her life for 2 weeks and then ignoring all contact when he gets pissy over child support. That messes a kid up especially when you tell a 2 yr old you're taking her to the zoo the next day and she doesn't hear from you for 3 years. The most recent time he saw her was around her 5th birthday, then his other daughter was born and that was it, bye bye ignore all calls again whatever. I told him never again. If he wants visitation he has to take me to court to establish a parenting plan. Thats it. He won't do it. Well his bm loves to start fights. Constantly talking crap about me to everyone who will listen that I don't work, I live of his CS, I never let him see his daughter blah blah blah. Well bd paid cs the other day, a whopping $22, when he is court ordered 182 / 2 weeks. So of course I filed contempt of court. He is over 8 grand behind, and is constantly doing erratic payments or non payments. I'm tired of it. I recently lost my job when new owners came in and laid off the entire staff to bring in their own people. So yeah I was kind of depending on child support to pay rent, because the side work I was doing was going to paying for my daughters needs as well as saving up for bills. So now shes on FB talking crap about me. I'll add the screen shot with her last name ommitted in the comments. My question is, is she right about the law, if you're court ordered a certain amount, and you pay at least 1 dollar a month, you can't be held in contempt?
