I havent posted for a while, but I had to share......<br>
My ex abandoned me and my 8 kids...one was already moved out, over a year ago. He left us with nothing. He has paid me 1200 in over a year. He owes me 1160 a month. He worked for cash to avoid paying me and then quits any real job as soon as he get garnished. Anyway, we had a contempt hearing today and they put him in jail. I said I would rather have him in jail thinking about things since he dont pay anyway. He lost his visitation cause he had a habit of not bringing them back. Also, he refuses to do supervised visitation. Oh, and he wanted to sign rights away to get out of cs until I told him he still would have to pay. He never even wanted to see them at the holidays.<br><br>
As you can see he is a major deadbeat dad. SO I am very happy that he is in jail. He wil have 6 months to think about it anyway........ I am so sick of these parents not paying their cs. Who do they think is supporting their kids.

Oh mama, I am sorry you are in this situation. Your ex sounds pretty bad. You made the right decision in having him jailed for nonpayment!<br>
Hugs going your way.<br>

Hugs. I feel bad for you mama. How are the kids taking it?<br><br>
He didn't see them over the holidays?<br><br>
How does he only owe $1160 for 7 kids living with you?? He's getting off easy.

In many states childsupport maxes out at 50% of the parent's income. If a parent can't support him/herself well enough to hold down a job it doesn't do the kids any good.

I am glad he is in jail. He sounds horrible. I hope your children are doing ok. When he is an old man and they don't want to see him or hear from him, he will have regrets.

I'm glad too. I wish there was a more effective way to actually get the money. You can't feed the kids with a contempt order. I wish they could put him to work in there.

At least it's showing your kids that being a deadbeat parent isn't OK.

the kids are fine, they dont see him or hear from him anyway, so its really no different for them. I had to file a po against is girlfriend cause she was calling and texting me threatening me. I dont uderstand texting someone a threat...not that hard to prove.<br><br>
My teenagers have said that they have learned how not to treat their wife and kids. My 18 yr old said there was no way he would screw his life up like his dad has. So at least some good has come from it.........

That no good you know what. (I didn't cuss)<br><br>
Alright mama. I wish I knew how you got it accomplished. I would be happy to see my ex do a "little" for not paying.<br><br>
If he hasn't paid in all this time but that one little lump of money, that is where he deserved to be.<br>
My x is still running around calling the police on me and putting my little ones through awful stuff, and he (according to the state) owes me well over $10,000 with interest, and then for my third child, he owes me much more, because he has never paid any cs towards her.<br><br>
Good for you mama. I hope your children will survive this, and know there was no choice, once he was giving all chances.
