I do believe that child support should be paid, but why is it that the mothers get to violate other court orders such as visitation and phone calls? We live in Indiana and his 2 children ages 10 and 13 live in AZ. There is a court order for visitation, we do not have a lot of money so I have more than once taken out small loans to have the boy flew in to see their dad, the mother has talked them out of coming. My husband trying to call his sons twice a wk as stated in court orders as well, she went 6 mths without answering my husbands calls. we recently hfound out that he has been paying child support on a his kids while they where living with someone else for the past 6 mths, The mother signed over gaurdinship of the youngest child to her ex-boyfriend in October and we just founded out about it thought her ex. He contacted my husband though facebook! I really don't think he should have to pay this woman anything, if the boys are not living with her!!
Paying child support on child that are not with their mother.
I have 2 stepsons that live in AZ. (my husband and I are live in IN) My husband is paying child support on these boys since they was born. We have recently found out that in October, the mother signed gaurdinship of the youngest to her ex boyfriend, the boy lived with the mothers ex for almost 6 mths. While my husband was paying child support on him. The mother would not answer any of my husbands calls so he could talk to his sons, which is why he didn't know that his youngest son was not living with their mother. My husband and I have been married 3 yrs. I have took out small loans more than once to have the kids flew in to IN. for visitation as stated in the court order, and their mother has talked the boys out of wanting to come visit their father each and every time by promising them different things. Such as, the mother and her new husband told the oldest boy that they would teach him how to hunt if he didn't go to Indiana for christmas. We have a court order to claim the oldest child on our taxes every yr, this yr without notice, the mother claimed him. This woman has violated every thing the court has order. My husband has written letter to the court without, still nothing has been done. All he wants is to see his kids. We can't not afford to take off work and fly to AZ. I think this is a very messed up system!!
