Well, legally, the mother doesn't have to consult the step mother on anything. However, if dad had a stroke and step mum is the one who is paying the child support and keeping things together financially in their home at the moment, it would be morally the right thing to do to discuss it with her. But she doesn't have to. But then, step-mum would also have a case in getting dad's child support reviewed too based on circumstances.

Thank you Jodi....i knew legally she doesn't have to include me in financial discussions, but I just wanted some reassurance and moral support!
