Joe's custody battle
Organized by: Joe Nevels
I have been separated from my wife for almost three years now. We have a son 20yrs old and a daughter that's 12... I work nights (10pm-6am) so I am able to take my daughter to school and pick her up after school. I keep her until it's time for me to go to work so basically she just sleeps at her moms since she is not able to stay at home alone at my apartment. I buy her school, and summer clothes, take her to Dr. Visits and activities. I also still pay for my wife's health insurance and have paid over $4,000 of my flexible spending accounts for 2 of her surgeries. Last week I received a card in the mail for a child support meeting with the attorney general. Although I do as much as I do for my daughter she is expecting me to still pay 20% of my pay just because she sleeps at her house during the week. I have researched lawyers who can help me file for divorce and get joint custody of my daughter, but it is expensive. Just seeking help so that my wife doesn't take advantage of a man who is doing his part.
