Step kids

I remarried 1 year ago and before we got married only my kids lived with us. Since then we moved so we could live in his son's school district. My stepsons mom said if we lived in his school district he could live with us 50%. For me this meant I have incresed my commute to work from and to work by an extra 30 minutes. Which is ok because I know my husband gets to build a relationship with his son. Well my husband would always complain if I gave my kids money. I was receiving child support for my kids and because I moved my kids out of their school district he needed gas money to get to and from school. Well now that his son lives with us not only is my husband still paying child support but he gives his son an allowance for cleaning. I would not be so upset if he would have treated my kids the same as well as not lying to me about it. Need some advice please.

Sit down and talk to your husband about your feelings. If he is giving his son an allowance, all the kids should be getting allowance. If the custody is joint, he can potentially go back to the courts and figure out a different child support payment. If his son is living with him 50% of the time, he may not need to pay as much.

Communication is the key.
