Wife of a Man paying child support
(Hunt Co, TX)
My husband and I got together months after his x. Then she came up and said she was pregnant, needless to say it was his child. So he in high school still, gets a job to support his child. He takes diapers, food, clothes, money etc to the mother, living at home with her parents. She decides to draw more money from the gov. so they give it to her. Then they finally catch up and say who's kid is this where is the father. I told him over and over keep your receipts ---but no, she wouldn't do that to me. Well the state called him into court and ordered visitation and child support. On top of all of that he now had to pay back all the money she was drawing off the state PLUS you guest it interest. So the first 5 yrs of income tax returns all went to the interest i.e. gov. Then she decides to get married and run off. You fathers know what that means ....well we didn't see that child again till he was 15. That was only because he tracked us down after catching his mother lying to him about his "father".
So shortly there after he moved to Kansas with his grandparents, had enough of the terrible mother, finally. We have been fighting every since to get the child support changed over to Kansas BUT no one wants to listen. So his horrible mother with whom (he told us) he has suffered a great deal of abuse and step father, is now getting the money to raise their 2 kids while our 2 kids at home suffer and his son who is rightfully owed the support. Now this very month the child will be 18, what will he have to show for it. He came to us begging us to try to help him but they won't do anything about it. We like 90% of families today can't afford an attorney, so that will never happen.
Now we are struggling too and need to know when the child support will end. I've read till he is out of school, but what if he isn't even in school and no one will listen about where he lives then how will they listen about him being in school. Is there anyone who can help or that will?
