My question involves child support in the State of: Nashville Tennessee
i am a father who takes care of his child and provides him with the absolute necessities that he needs, and now the mother is wanting claiming child support because she claims i am not getting simple things like a massive amount of toys and a new pair of shoes every time one pair gets dirty. i am not working at this time but it that has not stopped me from making sure that my child has the necessities; food, diapers,cloths, and i also see him on the regular. we have a worked out schedule to where we have him on alternating weeks and also go out to see him when its his mothers turn to have him. while i also make sure i provide for him i also make sure i provide for his mother also. Any ,and i mean any and everything, that i do have i give to the both of them. i bend over backwards and forward to make sure their lives are maybe just a little bit simpler and it seem like what she is complaining about is that at 21 i am not doing enough to compete with the "Jones". i am not saying that she is a bad mother, she is great at what she does but i don't think what is being brought up are thing that a two year old is really in need of. the thing that is really upsetting me about this is that the things she is wanting is outside of our mean. she tries to provide so much that she will give up every cent she has to things she thinks that are important so it seems like he is not from a low poverty home when he is not,what is really seem like is that she wants to just spoil her child and give him everything he was for him to be happy. she does not notice that she has been doing those things and a majority or those thing do not have a price tag on them. our child is taken great care of not only by us but by our parents also. we both still live at home with each others parents so we are not paying any real bills like rent, gas, lights, and thing. so yes we still are living at home and our parents provide all the major things for ourselves and our child , they cook meals, make sure there is food and things for us and also buy him cloths and toys and things in those manners. they provide us with a roof over our heads and rooms for us to sleep in. the whole child support things is ridiculous because she wants to make a as though she has nothing and our child nothing when he is being taken care of by ourselves and our families, the real thing issue to me is that she just wants to spoil him rotten and at this time we just don't have all the money for him to live like a prince and what i want to know is that is this just or will a court deem this worthy that she deserves child support.
