My step daughter had fillings on the 31st of March. We let "Martha" know about it and the cost on the 18th when Morgan had her cleaning. She has sent she sent it 3 times and is now telling us she will hand it to us on the 27th. Its only $125.00 which isn't huge but its still the fact that she does this every time Morgan has to go to the doctor for anything. Most the time if its under $100 we just eat it rather then take the verbal abuse and lies from her.
We received custody of Morgan in 2010 and agreed to no child support of any kind. In 2012 after some insurance issues and her refusing to pay any part of Morgans insurance we took her back to mediation and she agreed to pay $300 a month for 2 years to cover back payments on insurance then after that $250 a month for insurance. She told us she could not afford child support and we respected that.
The problem is that she lied. In the past 2 years she's bought a new car and had a baby, and is living very well off.
My question is do you think we should go back for child support, we could honestly use it? But people keep telling us since she has got married and got her life together that there is a chance that the court will give custody to her because she is the mother.
We believe if the rolls were reversed we would be paying out our a** in child support and insurance to her because she is a women, are we wrong? Would we risk custody if we went back to court?
