I divorced him in May/2008. He only wanted to pay child support an amount of 300.00 a month and he gets paid every week. The court and judged agreed an amount about 526.00 a month. He was extremely upset stated " I was all about the money" and "I'm not paying to see or visit my kids." Well he does pay. Me on the other hand I didn't want his money for our children but he DOES pay I do want to stress that in my story.
This man now is stating "How can u do this, ur keeping my kids away from me.
Our beautiful daughter is 14 yrs old and our handsome son is now 12 yrs old. However, they are not close to their father(nor has he attempted to see them and he has our current address) and they have stressed to me that they do not want to visit w/him. My daughter has reported to her counselor that he had been driving late in the morning at 1-2 am after drinking. My son has also reported to his counselor that he gets pinched by his father. My children have been in counseling for other reasons. Their counselor has advised that if they do not want to see him to NOT FORCE THEM. Also, my attorney has advised as well. I'm at a lost because he says he's taking ME to court now. SO he states. My daughter has her own cell phone and she claims that there have been no calls, no texts, and no messages. What can I do? Do I keep encourgaging my children to see their father even though they do not want to. I wish the judge would speak w/my children.
Their father texts me when he is at work telling me to grow up and he will not provide me with his current address that he resides at. He only provides me with his mothers address.
I'm sorry but I feel that I have provided him w/my NEW address and all information that he has requested why is it a battle for him to do the same.
