Subject: Because he's their father

I'm gonna take a wild stab here: Your husband has to pay child support to his ex, right?

He is the kids' father, and he's expected to provide for them, irrespective of how he feels about their mother or what she does with the money he pays.

If he thinks she's not using the money toward the kids, he needs to let the court that set up the child support schedule know of his suspicions, because if she is blowing it on Prada shoes or whatever, and the kids are suffering as a result, she can be penalized.

Yes it is my husband and I understand it is because he has to pay it due to him being the father.... We have been to court many times trying to prove she does not use that money for the children...all he can say is that as long as they have food and a roof over their head, it is taken care of. She does not work and receives all kinds of help from the state. She is healthy as a horse and is perfectly capable of working but is too lazy. We have tried to get custody of his other 2 he is paying on and they feel the children belong with the mother. She drinks and parties every weekend and the kids are left to stay in the room while she has "friends" over...I am sorry, but she does not deserve the children or the money! We have tried everything to get the kids to live with us...but in Florida.

Let's settle this issue swiftly. If this man feels as if his children are being neglected (mother spends money on herself) he can simply go to court and get custody for himself. If he does not then maybe he is just as guilty of neglect. Its easy to accuse the mother of things when she deals with the kids 24/7. Lets let daddy deal with it for a while and see how he likes the responsibility.
