When my ex-wife and I divorced we were awarded 50/50 custody and I was to provide $25/wk child support in good faith as we both made $70/k per year.
In that time I have always provided whatever is necessary for my son when he is with me. During the last year my ex has quit her job making $70K and took on a part time job which she lost as well a couple months back.
She is now taking me back to court to modify the child support because she has chosen not to go back to work full time. She has a part time job at Jimmy John's. Based on her decision to not work full time is it my responsibility to now be forced to pay more child support even though I have my son 50% of the time?
My son is going to be 13 in May and is in the 7th grade. I know for a fact it is due to her alcoholism and I am frustrated at the fact that I don't mind paying for whatever my son needs when he is with me however it was my ex's choice to change her life. While we were married she worked 80+ hours a week, but maybe that was because she was having an affair with her boss. I just want to know if it is now up to me to supplement her financially.
