BM Petitioned for a CS Review & Other Financial News
Happy Holidays to us... We just received BM's petition for a child support review. Totally in BM fashion to request this right before the holidays to stress us out. And of course, right before SS comes to us for Thanksgiving after 5 months of no visits.
DH and I are scared to see how this is going to go. While DH isn't making a boatload more than he was previously, he is making about $5000 more per year. Because BM requested it though, it does allow us to factor in DD now, which hopefully helps our case. BM was also stupid enough to send DH an email this week stating that she no longer needs childcare, which would be another reduction. Plus, we were able to indicate that BM is working for Door Dash and doing private practice therapy on top of her job at the hospital, so the courts will have that information now too. Thank you SS for that tidbit of useful information. I really hope for once in our lives, our CS actually goes down.
In other news, BM sent DH a medical bill for a visit to SS' pediatrician when he was sick last month. BM's insurance must suck because it was $87 out-of-pocket after insurance. When I take DD to the pediatrician when she is sick (which I have had to do so many times in the past few weeks), it is a $20 copay. BM has made it clear to DH that she does not trust him, so in typical distrusting BM fashion, she blacked out the account number on the bill. This account number doesn't pertain to BM's personal or financial information at all, it is just the account number associated with SS' account at the pediatrician's office. Like c'mon BM, way to be petty. BM has told DH pointblank that she doesn't trust him and she has done petty stuff like this over and over again to reiterate that, yet she trusted him enough to get pregnant. Like what is it with these women? So dumb.
Anyway, please say a prayer or send good vibes for a favorable outcome on our CS review! As much as we would love to believe we will get a reduction, we have learned that child support reviews rarely go in our favor.
