Oh, lordy I hope so. I'm not exactly sure what happened, but Nichole sent the paperwork in for boyfriend to have to pay child support. This was at least a week ago and boyfriend is still livid an pouting. He's trying to lay a guilt trip at her feet. He's been acting more the difficult child than she has ever! Too bad the girl sent the paperwork into the child support enforcement agency. lol It's paperwork that the program that pays for her child care gave her. So there will be no going back now. boyfriend will be required to pay support for Aubrey. The real kicker is going to be when he is required to pay 2 years of back child support on top of it ! easy child says that Nichole told her she did it because she and boyfriend have just too rocky a relationship, she's tired of having to beg him for everything the baby needs and then him whining about how expensive it all is, and it doesn't seem like their relationship is going anywhere. Could it be? Is it possible? Has some of what the family has been telling her maybe begun to sink in a little bit?? Mr. Cheapskate is having a royal fit because since Aubrey went on table food at around 12 mos he hasn't really been buying anything for her. About once a month he buys diapers and wipes. Nichole had to get on WIC to keep the baby in milk ect. Oh, and with the diapers and wipes, half the time it's actually his Mom that buys them. Although here this last quarter he did pay 40 dollars a week for the baby's daycare. This when the agreement was supposed to be that Mr. Cheapskate was supposed to buy all her food, clothing, and diapers ect in place of child support. It made me mad because when he doesn't do it, it of course falls on husband and I to do it. And we're not flowing in the cash dept these days. Then he has the audacity to ask if he can claim her on his taxes! Uh, NO! boyfriend did hold it together well for the holiday. I give him credit. But I can't tell you how often they've been going at it here lately over this. And I'm sure when it comes time to pay up it's gonna get worse. Funny thing is, neither of them know that Nichole would've been forced to do it anyway. Since the state is paying for her daycare they require the non custodial parent to be paying child support, especially if the Mom is working and not going to school. Nichole told me the other day why she hadn't done it sooner. boyfriend had convinced her this paper they had signed in the hospital stating that boyfriend was the Dad gave them BOTH shared custody of Aubrey. Which meant she couldn't ask for child support. The look on her face when I explained to her that the paper was so that boyfriend could visit the baby and her any time being the Dad, was priceless. It had, could not possibly have anything to do with custody of the baby. Since she and boyfriend are not married and have never lived together the state considers her as full custodial parent. She learned alot in that short conversation. But I can't help but laugh at boyfriend. Seems he has convinced himself that he will explain to them (the state) that he lives at home, is a student who has to pay for school, and they won't take much...... All the state cares about is how much his pay is before taxes. lol Mr. Cheapskate is in for a rude awakening. State isn't gonna give a hoot about his sob story. Do I feel sorry for him? NO. I have warned him for 2 yrs that he was being a fool. There was no garantee that he and Nichole were going to stay together. That if they broke up, not only would he be required to pay support, but also back support for all the time he didn't pay. I tried to keep him from getting into a mess with it. But he wouldn't listen. So I guess we'll see. I've had the feeling for some time that one of the reasons boyfriend is reluctant to honestly break it off with Nichole is because he'd have to pay support. Ought to be interesting to watch his true colors surface.
