My question involves child support in the State of: TX
Ex had not paid any support for 2 years and since June of 2011 has only paid $60 a month when he wants to that is. I have sole custody of our 6 year old daughter since she was 2. Ex owes over 16k in arrears. The state has filed on him for non payment a year ago. The judge keeps putting off making a judgement on him for non payment. The last time we was in court she said she cant make us but would like to see us mediate on the child support also. What does that mean?? Let him off?? I dont understand!!! I provide everything for my daughter finicially... doctor visits, co pays, health insurance premiums, all out of pocket medical, school clothes and supplies, after school care, summer child care, food, shelter, everything! He is ordered to pay $450 a month plus and extra $100 for back pay, and 50% of health premiums and out of pocket costs. He "lost" his job back in Sept 09. State filed on him March 2011. He then filed for full custody ( making me jump through all kinds of hoops) later in 2011 he files for ssdi/ssi. He says that he is still in the application process but according to the information he provided he has already been denied and is in the appeals process.
Me and daughter live out of state and I am proposing letting him pay no child support as long as he provides transportation to and from for all of his visits, but want payments of $100 a month for arrears. The amicus attorney does not like this idea. I am so confused on what to do Im going to loose my mind!!! On top of that when he gets her he buys her what ever she wants, even moved to a bigger house to please her because she said that mommies house is bigger. He even bought two vehicles one of which is brand new!! Where is he getting all this money!!??? I mean I am glad they are spending time together but come on now!
