Yea, I should have known. Ex has a habit of not paying child support. He's over $60,000 in arrears. We've actually been getting money (FINALLY) for a little over a year now which was nice when I wasn't working. Now that I'm back to work and starting to make a small dent in the bills that are WAY overdue, he decides to quit his job (or he lost it) and we are going to have a VERY bare Christmas. It hoovers that he can have nothing to do with his kids (no phone calls, cards, visits, NOTHING for 10 years) and not feel bad about it not to mention not pay anything to help support them. It must be nice. I wish I could just walk away and know that someone else will take care of them. Yea, I'm feeling sorry for myself. I know there are parents that get no support whatsoever EVER for the kids but it still irks me. I should know better than to trust that he'll ever pay anything and budget with that in mind but I really was naive enough to think that since he's been paying for over a year that it would continue. Stupid, stupid, STUPID!! Vent over.
