BM's Money Shenanigans
BM TWICE in the last few weeks said she had "just mailed" the college receipts for SS's tuition - well, they finally arrived. He did not drop a class, though he did change one for another. And she very carefully heavily redacted SS's college ID number with a black marker, because egads, god forbid a father should know his son's college ID number! Imagine the havoc he could wreak with that information. (It occurs to me that she may have done that because I redacted my Social Security number from the tax returns we had to submit to court, and she's just that kind of tit for tat person).
5 weeks ago, she sent DH a text saying she was standing in front of the Child Support Enforcement Unit and did he REALLY want her to get the money taken from his check?? (It is currently taken from his check, she was going to submit the new order with the increase). They'd take his whole check with back support! Apparently her black heart was just filled with sadness and worry about her ex-husband's financial well-being. DH told her to go ahead, he had a credit there. No more was heard from her.
Well, I know NY state government, and it doesn't take 5 weeks for them to take a man's money from his check. Yesterday, BM sends an email saying that apparently, she just found out that this order is a "pay direct" order and it will cancel the other order (which was also a pay direct order, BM just requested it go through CSEU) and so as of this Friday, he would have to pay her directly. I call bullshit. I think she just yesterday went down there now and requested it be paid directly. She could have easily claimed he wasn't paying (truthfully, since he's been waiting for her to put it through) and had it garnished from his check. Seems to me that him paying directly gives her more room to mess with him. And she's begun questioning how much he's paying for tuition, and if it's correct, etc, based on the (vague, of course) wording of the CO.
Sigh. I hate that she found a way to weasel her way in and force DH to communicate with her and take up space in our lives. Only 22 months left.
