My question involves child support in the State of: Ohio.
My husband pays 62.22% of his children's monetary needs (according to the child support work sheet) and pays all of their medical, dental and vision insurance. His oldest son (15) with his ex wife is receiving almost $700 a month from S.S.D.I. because he is disabled. We no longer see this child because of his unstable mental state. Their 12 year old son is constantly telling us that his mother works and he goes with her to work. She cleans apartments for her boyfriend's family business. Because she works for her boyfriend's family, we know they won't testify the truth in court. My husband pays almost $1,000 a month in all of these costs. I completely agree that he should help support his children but we are tired of her frauding the system to get more help. We can't afford to have a private investigater follow her and we're worried that if we go into court without proof that he'll end up paying more child support. We have 2 children together and can barely afford to live because of all the support he pays. And because he gave her custody of their oldest, now she is saying she is going to take him back for more money. She gets S.S.D.I. for their oldest, food stamps, the state medical card and countless other state funded resources at her finger tips. What can we do to prove our case in court and make her stop using us and the state?
