Well, this really takes the cake. I received a bill from my ex wanting me to pay half of the kids expenses when he has them. He wants me to pay half for his gas, half for the food the kids eat, etc.

This comes from a guy who has not paid a cent of child support since November '06 and a payment was made then to keep him out of jail. I have a call in to my attorney to see what he has to say.

I'm sorry I know it's not funny but I had to laugh. I think I just heard of someone as stupid as my ex. You're lawyer will have a field day with this one.

He either has cajones of mass proportions or is short a few brain cells. Combination of both can be fatal :toothy:

Do we have the same ex?? I hate to laugh at others expense, but this made me chuckle. Are they really that stupid?

Things like this are a constant reminder of why we got a divorce in the first place!!

I can't even believe the nerve of him!!! I hope the lawyer helps stick it to him, so that he ends up paying you for a year of back child support. I am so sorry you are in this situation! (HUGS)!

I just couldn't believe it when I got the bill. In spite of eveything, I did find it funny.

Kj, I'm in need of some of that stinkeye. I know you could take care of him.

He has an order with CSEA (child support enforcement agency) but he works under the table or out of state so they can't find him. He owes me about $15,000 and asked me if I would forgive the back payments so he could buy a house. He even filed bankruptcy, but they wouldn't take the back support off.

Of course, he doesn't pay me when I have the kids. I love them and would never degrade them by asking him for half of the money when I have them.
Sometimes I just can't figure out men. This letter did not come from his attorney; it came directly from him!!

Let me get this straight:
he owes you $15,000 in back support, works under the table to avoid paying what he owes and wants you to waive that $$ so he can buy a house....what a maroon. Well why don't you just co sign a mortgage loan for him too...jeesh!

I just HATE it when exes nickel and dime so that it sounds like all they think about is that time with their kids is costing them $$, as opposed to focusing on the fact they are a parent and need to spend time with their kids & pay the bills associated with being a parent. I would suggest he get a lawyer if he has a case.

Perhaps you could put a little smiley face sticker on a copy of the letter and give it back to him with a "nice try" comment written in red...kinda like when you were back in school and the teacher would grade the papers!

On another note, if you know how to reach him, can't you let the collection agency know so you can get a judgement and get some money?

Hmmm...
a few fries short of a Happy Meal?
not the brightest crayon in the box?
elevator doesn't go all the way to the top?

Sorry that wasn't nice, but I am with claimsgirl66, can they not just spend time with their children without thinking about it costing them money???

Hummm, he works under the table and wants you to forgive the owed money so he can buy a house? Well, since he's working under the table to avoid taxes and crap how is he going to show proof of income to purchase a home?

I am surprised the child support agency in your area doesnt FORCE him to get a job, I know they did with my DH when he was laid off and collecting unemployment they made him get a job or he would go to jail.

You know, you can INSIST that they investigate his sources of income. If they find him working under the table, they will turn him in to the IRS. On second thought, YOU can turn him in to the IRS anonymously, or just do it and tell them he's $15,000 arrears in child support, and working under the table, not paying taxes. Let him try to buy a house when they hit him with THAT bill!
