Pissed Off Step Mom!!!!
My husband had a daughter with someone whom he was never married to and ever since his daughter was born she decided when he saw her and where and for how long.....until I came into the picture!!! They agreed 11 years ago to $60 a week and every year he would buy clothes...actually, until me, he sent her money. I started taking my step daughter shopping for school a few years ago but this year we couldn't afford it. My husband and I have 2 boys together and they're growing as well but last year I spent close to $300 on school shopping for her. My husband and I have also busted our A**ES to clean up our credit so we could get newer more reliable vehicles for all 3 of our children to ride in. Well this year we just happened to stumble on a good deal for both of us so I now have a 2008 up from a 1998 and my husband finally has his truck.
Well now my step daughter's mother thinks we're rich!!! NOT TRUE!!!! I work 2 jobs at night to be home with my 2 boys all week during the day taking them to pre school and kindergarten and staying home with them while they're sick. Plus not too mention it saves us over $800 a month in daycare expenses. My husband drives truck so I'm pretty much a single mother Monday thru Friday. Well now all of a sudden she wants to have the child support reviewed. She's doing this because she is married and has a child by her husband and she's supporting the four of them because he works when he wants too.
So are we suppose to support both households?!! My husband is suppose to have his daughter every other weekend which has only been stuck too for about 1 year of her life. She will be 12 in April 2009!!!! He has never been able to have her for a week in the summer or on vacations!! I told him if she wants more child support that this is what we were doing: no extra's cuz that's what child support is for, we get her every other weekend faithfully, we get her for 1 week in June, July and then August AND every other year starting this year my husband will claim his daughter on HIS income tax return!!!! I do believe this is only fair.
Every time his ex calls and his daughter needed something for sports or school or whatever we made sure she had it but now my step daughter really only calls us when she wants something. So she has adapted the "They're Rich" from her mother. I just feel like ripping something or someone apart. I'm a female and I have 2 kids and I do believe in providing for your children but come on doesn't anyone believe on co-parenting. Showing your kids that your adult enough to get along. Which by the way has never really happened here. There has always been little digs here and there even after we tried to get along. Does anyone know a good lawyer in New Hampshire for situations like this?
