Child Supprt Concerns
Is there a way I can find out what my son's mother is using my child support payments for? She doesn't work. She's gets about $500 in food stamps a month, she lives with her parents and doesn't pay rent. Her husband is currently in Federal Prison, and about $140,000 was released to her when he was first incarcerated. Plus, I pay her about $600 in child support every month and our son is on my insurance so he gets free healthcare. She also drops my son off at my folks house to stay for over half the week and according to them, she doesn't give them any money so they end up paying for all his food while he's there. And for some reason my mother keeps calling me up asking if I can either send her money or if I can buy and mail him underwear that fits. Sometimes it's pants, shoes, or jackets. I'm genuinely curious, what is she using the money for? During his visit to me last summer, his Mom only packed him size 2T when he was a 4T. So my wife went out and bought him an entirely new wardrobe.
My ex has a drinking problem and went to rehab for it, and she also spent 45 days in jail this past winter due to her 2 aggravated DUIs. So yes, I am a bit skeptical for what she could be using the money for. I just don't understand how she's not using any of the money to buy him clothes that fit.
