We've had joint custody since she was 3 months old. There has been so much turmoil between our families since before she was even born. Last year we went back to court, his visitation was restricted to every saturday from 10-6:30, with him not being allowed to spend more than half the visit at home, because he was leaving her there with his mom. He was made to spend time with her, made to call her every night. Yet still doesnt follow the court order. She doesnt even want to go, shes 5. He pays $55 a week in child support, which helps but doesnt go to as much as i need it to. I work 3 jobs. I had asked him to help me out with 1/2 of a summer program, that could be beneficial to her before kindergarten in the fall. He told me no, he can barely live and to use the child support. He lives at home with his parents. Now am i wrong to be a little miffed that I make sacrifices, pay for just about EVERYTHING she needs and wants, yet he is not willing to ?? He enjoys a nightlife, cigarettes, and everything else, yet cant help out with that?? Wants more time, but doesnt spend what he does have with her...
