My ex has suddenly decided he wants to parent again. He got a bit screwed when it came to holidays and summer because based on his behavior during our marriage and the divorce he wouldn't be bothered. Anyways he says he has a lawyer and is going to send me papers to sign to lower his monthly child support payment and adjust holiday visits because he is making less money than when we got divorced. This is likely true he had the best job he has ever had aside from the military when we were getting divorced. [more inside]

My dad will be making his last child support payment to my mother next month for my brother who is 19 and no longer in full time education (he’s going to university). After then he will no longer financially support my brother - he hasn't financially supported me since I was 18 when he made his last support payment. I am now thinking of asking him directly to make a monthly payment to me and my brother since he isn’t supporting us in any other way. [more inside]

I just noticed another question posted re: child support, so while we're on the subject . . . I haven't received child support in more than 5 months and it was sporadic before that. Now my ex has stated emphatically that he won't pay until or unless he gets a job. That may sound reasonable to many, but I believe he's not actively pursuing work because he doesn't have to work - his wife is the primary breadwinner. [more inside]
