Ex doesn’t pay because he thinks we have enough

August 16, 2011

My daughter is going to be 12 soon & her dad has never paid a penny towards her up keep. He has never shown any real interest & feels that he doesn’t need to contribute anything either because in his words my daughter doesn’t want for anything! Meaning that because I work my butt off to make sure she’s well looked after & provided for that he doesn’t need to bother.

Things are very tight for me, trying to provide & I’m sick of him not taking any responsibility for the life he helped create. Could you please reply & give me some advice on what my next move should be.

    Lorraine, two people make a child and two people should support the child, he sounds like my ex – a real prize – NOT! But we all make mistakes unfortunately. You need to make a claim through the CSA if you havent already, if you can afford not to go through the CSA – they thats the best solution. But you probably wont be able to claim back for 12 yrs as the CSA have a stupid time limit on everything which in unworkable due them taking so long to sort out things anyway!

    Please join the facebook groups child support agencies failings and others for advice and support, good luck, sounds like any arsehole who thinks he can walk away when he is bored – a big kid himself.
