My 14 year old stepson came to live with us last October from Philippines. Last time my husband saw his kid was when he was 3 years old. My husband has always sent child support to the mother and now the mother expects my husband to keep sending her money. She calls her son and tells him his father does not want to send her any money and it is creating a lot of conflict between him and us. My stepson believes his father should keep sending money to his mom. Now the mother wants her son back and my stepson wants to move back with her and has been misbehaving. My husband does not want to separate from his son, but I do not think the relationship between them is going to improve because the mom will not stop manipulating my stepson into getting her money.
