My Ex is taking me to court - anyone have suggestions?

Cheri Lynne - posted on 10/28/2018 ( 1 mom has responded )




My ex and I separated in 2009 & divorced in 2011.
I have primary care of our children, but we have shared custody.
Up until 3 years ago, he really did not spend anytime with them.
The kids are now 14 & 13 years old.
He remarried and now he thinks he is super Dad.
His wife has now left him
I have always encouraged him to spend time with his children.
Whenever he wanted them - I said "sure!"
He began taking them 50% of the time about 3 years ago.
Now he wants back pay for child support for this time.
He never mentioned child support before - just now because of the court case.
I have tried to work on a new separation agreement with him, offering no child support payments.
He thinks with the new off set child support calculations that he will be getting money every month from me as well as all this back pay from child support he paid.
We make the same amount of money annually.
My daughter had a huge falling out with him and does not go to his place anymore. This situation has been for almost 1 year now.
My son goes 4 days on - 4 days off.
We are going to court at the end of November 2018 for a case conference.
He is a chronic pot smoker- has been all his life - one of many reasons for our divorce.

Any suggestions?
