Going back to court this morning. I mentioned court to someone yesterday and they said, “Oh my gosh! I thought that you were done with all of that?”. Technically, yes. The divorce is final (finally!) however, I don’t know that my court battles will ever end.
Over the past few days, I’ve debated whether or not to even go this morning? It is for child support (lack of) and it is a date that he added to the court calendar. He’s paid over $16,000 for rent on his luxury condo in the past eight months yet less than $1,500 in child support. Great priorities, right? The current balance sits somewhere near $28,000 in arrears.
I struggle with my feelings on the money aspect of this fight. The money is supposed to be for my daughters. As a result of the non-payment, they go without many things. He holds it over my head– claims that I fight for custody to get more money. To him, it’s all about the money. We will make it regardless of whether or not he pays but the bottom line is that his daughters suffer when he withholds money in an effort to “win”.
