so my fiance's ex took custody of her daughter 3 years ago and opted out of child support. The judge told him he would be responsible for drop off and pick ups. He called us one day said he's going to put my wife in jail for child support unless she does drop offs and pick ups. ( my fiance has no job and no car which he knows but I do) he throws child support in her face with any argument they have but never does. He calls the other day says he wants 100 bucks a month we explain we have one income we split costs like we always do but no he comes up with random 682 dollars a month of child support if we don't agree. You're talking about a guy that gets a new car every 6 months has a wife with a job for the state. Then he calls me and tells me if I don't pay him every month something he will file and since my wife is a stay at home mom breast feeding our 11 month year old daughter with no money but my income she'll get a warrant for arrest and go to jail to me this sounds like extortion or really close.
Child need support from both parents. You can calculate child support online by using income and custody time. Hopefully she can find a job soon to help support her daughter.
He's blowing smoke: he can't put her in jail for not paying when there isn't an order to pay. He also can't get a support order based on your income. Bottom line - he's an ass! However, maybe she should do the driving - because she does need to contribute something.
