Hi and good morning mothers out there.
I am new to this site and desperately need help. I haven't been with my sons dad for about 5 years now. We remained friends after until he got married things have changed. He is a great dad financially buying what my son needs. He stopped paying child support (which was never documented but a verbal agreement) last year. He picks him up almost every weekend. My son lives with me, I pay for his school lunches and buys what he needs of course. His father texted me upset because I claimed my son for taxes. And his other response was "see u in court" im afraid things are going to turn out bad. And reason why I say that in a way is because I live in a huge one bedroom house and let my friend and her 3 little ones live with me until she got her goals together. They all have their own beds. I work hard everyday. I haven't even asked his father for child support because in case things get worse I want to make it look like im not money hungry and show judge I do and support my son without his money. so my question is, am I in a bad situation? what can happen since he said ill see u in court? I know in my heart I haven't done anything wrong because I know im entitled to claim my own kid who lives with me. I think his dad is basically going to screw himself if he takes me to court because they are going to see that he doesn't pay child support. My son does have his own room at his dads house. I don't know if that even matters. he makes more money then me too. but my son is in no danger, has a roof over head, has decent looking clothes, does great in school, I set rules and discipline him. what can happen? especially because my living situation please help..... :( im jus scared and stressed
