What should I do about this child support situaiton?

Well he’s screwing over his daughter not so much you! Support is for her. So, if you’ve been w/out the amount now then you’re ok. But you should get the extra funds for your daughter & have it put for her needs.

Girl I would get it and continue to take care of my child…

If you have been accepting that amount for years it might not be so easy to get the court to make him pay it. If you already know he cant afford anymore then why try to make him pay more?.. That might make him change job to cash money and then what…there no poof of income then he can say i dont make but 100 a week and where that leave you…with nothing

I would ring child support for advice and help. I can’t do privately with my ex because he refuses to take any kind of responsibility. If he owes me, they chase him and any owing at tax time once he does his tax, it pays off the debt. (As long as he doesn’t owe other government services money)

NEVER do child support or custody on your own. It’s too easy to be manipulated & there’s no enforcement. Yes! Take him to court. Take in proof of him misrepresenting his income, medical bills you’ve paid & that are outstanding, child care expenses etc. Request that he pay at least 50% of her expenses along with back child support & higher support going forward.

Your child deserves and is entitled to child support

I get that a week PLUS a portion of daycare expenses AND medical expenses!! If you live in NY go get what you are owed!!!

I’d say yes, but then I’d look at my own situation and say take a step back and consider all the angles. If him possibly fighting for more time and maybe not being civil with you is a possibility, I’d say no. It’s not worth it. All the money in the world can’t buy peace.

Absolutely. It can help pay off the debt from her surgery, which he should have paid 50% of anyway!
