Funny note: XWH had OW spend nite-- not allowed in SC. I sent blazing email. He cries a river about how mean I am to do this to him,,, not let his children spend night with him.
He pouts that he will be bringing them home every night at 9pm....
Stay with me here,,,,,
The next day I email him asking him to pay for son't class ring,,,as i am paying band fees. He of coarse responds that that is what child support is for.
I responded,,, child support in SC is based on 109 over nights a year (attached link). You may work with me on activites for our children, or I'll take you back to court and get the extra 150/mo I'm entitled to to keep the standard of living up for our children...
He ordered the class ring today. YES!

I suppose I'm just surrounded by "good" ex husbands (my girlfriends whose exes pay CS, medical AND help with other stuff). After reading these responses, I guess I should be grateful he has a good job so I get the CS that I do!
Thanks again, and I'm so sorry for those of you who don't receive the support you are legally entitled to!
He also was only allowed to claim her for taxes for the first 2 years, and had to split his entire tax return with me. I claim her now, and get to every year from here on out, and I don't have to give him a dime of my tax return.
Additionally, I have sole decision making. Meaning I can sign her up for the most expensive private school with a million dollar tuition in the country...and he can't say a damn word about it. I don't even have to ask him- just notify him of where she is going to school and give him a reciept.
He also has visitation limitations based on the court finding him to have a drinking problem- but visitation is seperate so that's neither here nor there.
He complains sometimes- and I remind him that it was his choice to physically abuse me, his choice to continue drinking, and his choice to use drugs. Asshat.
At least the current man "only" cyber-cheated.
