    How Can I Make My Mom Pay Child Support? I have lived with my grandparents since I was 6 months old, I am now 17 and a half. Neither of my parents have ever paid child support (I think they might have for the first couple of months, but I’m not sure). My dad is currently in jail, but he lived with my grandparents and I before and he will live with us again when he gets out. My dad is a recovering alcoholic, and he hasn’t been able to keep a job in years. His life has really been going down hill until he went to jail, and hopefully he will get his life together when he gets out. He does as much for my older sister and I as he possibly can. If he has money & we need something, he will help us out. He buys us gifts for our birthdays and Christmas. He does everything in his power to be the best father he can.
    My mom, on the other hand, has nothing to do with me. She talks to my older sister, but I’m not sure of how much. She literally didn’t talk to me at all over a 6 year period, and now she doesn’t talk to me at all again. For my birthday she visited my sister at work, brought her balloons, gave her money, and for my birthday she gave my sister a card for me that read “sorry I didn’t call”. Really, how hard is it to pick up a phone? I have never asked my mom for anything before, because I just prefer to keep her out of my life. She has never once tried to be a “mother” towards me, and he puts no effort into being in my life. In 9th grade, I asked her to help me pay for a trip to Six Flags, and she gave me between $250-$350, I’m not sure of how much exactly. And a couple of months ago when I got kicked out I asked if I could stay with her, but I honestly felt like I was living in a house with a bunch of strangers so I only stayed for 3 days. Today, I asked her if she could help me pay for my SAT test (it would cost $75, I was going to ask her to pay for half) but she never responded. I wouldn’t have even asked, but my grandma is currently going through expensive cancer treatments and we don’t have the money for it, and if I payed for it with my own money I wouldn’t have gas for the next week. I ended up having to pay for it myself in full.

    When I asked her, I sent her a text saying “Do you think you can help me pay for my SAT? It’s $75 and I don’t have enough to pay for it all.” She never replied, so I asked my little sister (who lives with my mom) to ask if she got the text, and she said that my mom couldn’t find her phone. So I just asked to to tell her to call me when she could. (I knew she didn’t lose her phone because she needs it for work). The next morning, she never called and I never got a reply. So I texted her again and said “Alright, thanks for nothing then.” and her responce was “Right back at you babe.”. This SET ME OFF.

    I want to press charges on her for never paying child support, because she has enough money to fix up old cars and have two more kids after me and to go on hunting trips and vacations, but she doesn’t have $75 much less the $300-some dollars she’s supposed to pay every month? If you’re going to have a child, you should take care of it- that’s how I see it. She doesn’t deserve to just sit back and act like I don’t exist and I am sick of it. She acts like it’s my responsibly to keep up with her but it’s not. She’s the parent, she should call me every once in a while or whatever. And when I did try, she still had nothing to do with me.

    Sorry this is so long. Is there a way I can press charges on my mom for not paying child support without my dad getting in trouble as well? My dad does as much as he can, and he is actually a father to me. Unlike my sorry excuse for a mom.

    If there are any lawyers or anyone in that profession that can help me out, please feel free to email me at agsandstedt@gmail.com.
    Obviously my grandparents are the ones who would have to do it. I realize that, I’m not stupid. I’m wondering what steps we would have to take.

    Is My Marriage Worth Staying In? I have been married for almost 3 years and we also have a healthy, happy baby girl who will be celebrating her first birthday 3 weeks from today. My upbringing was very different in some aspects from my husband’s upbringing. Similar in some ways too. When I first starting dating my husband, I did get along with his family, although they were very aggressive. It was never anything that would throw up red flags and nothing I couldn’t handle then. However, the two months prior to my wedding, people started to show their true colors. Specifically, his mother and sister. Prior to this, I did have a couple of instances with his sister in which she was out of line and showed that she had bully tendencies, but again, nothing that would foreshadow what I was walking into. Basically, his mother and sister have ruined every event in our lives that meant a lot to me. All the way from the bridesmaids dress fitting, the bachlorette party, all the way to the birth of my baby. My husband never set boundaries with his family, and didn’t understand the significance of putting me first, and that turned our marriage upside down. I used to take the higher road with them, but I could only take so much and I started to fight back and defend myself since my husband never did. I turned into an ugly person that would (figuratively speaking) cut you up with my words. My husband started to resent me because I talked to him badly and emasculated him. I felt that I did have to come in and be the man or we would have lost everything, since he had also lost his job during this time and I was working 60 hour weeks while pregnant and until I gave birth. After the ill fated first Christmas for our baby, I declared that I would no longer go to family gatherings, and neither would my baby, because I did not want her to witness his family treat me badly and think that it was ok for me to be treated like that or that it was ok be a bully. I reached my breaking point shortly after and told him that I wanted a divorce, and then we went to counseling. We have been going to counseling for 14 weeks separately, working on our own issues, and sometimes meeting in a group. It has become quite expensive and, considering the fact that my husband has not had full time employment since right before I found out I was pregnant, it has become a bill I cannot afford as I feel that we are running around in a circle and not accomplishing much or not accomplishing results timely. My husband was not raised in the church as I was and “did not know” that a man leaves his father and mother when he marries and he cleaves to his wife. He “did not know” that he had to put me first. My husband now finally sees that by him not setting boundaries with his family, that he set the stage for our marriage to fail, and he also acknowledges that his family are savages, but he still wants to be involved with them and the gatherings that they have every time someone sneezes. I believe that if he set his mother and sister straight (and no one is saying he has to be aggressive to do that) and stays true with the boundaries, that I would not having a problem going around them and being a family with them. That is a huge statement to make considering that 12 weeks ago, I could have cared less if they died and I wouldn’t even permit them to go to my grandmother’s (my heart) funeral when she passed away in March. I stated that time was not a time for anyone to try to reconcile, because comments had been made in the past about me always crying over my grandmother who was “dying for 3 years now.” Also, I could not allow the memory of my grandmother to be tainted if people came and commotions were created as my mother truly hates his family as she has been on the receiving end of their bad behavior and witnessed my treatment first hand. Now, all my husband has to do is go to his mother’s house and explain why we haven’t been around since Christmas and to let her know her boundaries and that his wife comes first. My 34 year old husband is afraid to do this but acknowledges that he has to do it. This is what we agreed to 2 weeks ago and he has yet to go over there. I have already said that I will not look the other way and he must do this if he wants to save his marriage AND be part of their lives with me. I have held on to a hope that he will do right be me and our marriage will get back to where it needs to be, and that all of the anger that I have will subside and we can proceed and be happy. I have been crying all morning since our session last night because we erupted in a huge argument over why he hasn’t done what he said he would do and I just wonder, when do you decide that things are irreconcilable He called me this morning and told me that he is going to go see his parents today and to have faith in him that he will put me first but I really just wonder is it too late, is my marriage worth s
    Also, during all of this, it came back to me that his sister was talking ill about me at a family event that we were not at. I called her to let her know that I knew what she said and my intent was to inform her why they didn’t get to see their niece and why her mother didn’t get to see her grandmother, but in true coward, bully fashion, she wouldn’t let me speak and hung up on me. I told my husband that I would kick her *ss if she came around here. He did call her and tell her that we don’t talk about her and to make sure she didn’t talk about me and hung up on her. Weeks later, she did not send an invitation to our house for her kids birthday. She only sent a text to my husband about it and purposely excluded me. So this is not another time that I am going to look the other way and go into the lion’s den. This is one of the many reason’s that it is time for him to be a man and assert himself as a man. I am not forcing him to do this, he has a choic

      Give your husband a chance. He has been dealing with this all of his life, it is not so easy for him to make a special trip to his mother’s house just to “set boundaries” and explain why he has not been spending much time with her….that is definitely a set up for a major argument, and he knows that and is trying to avoid it. You are putting him in a really tough spot by insisting that he do this. My advice to you would be to let your husband off the hook on this one (insisting that he go to his mother and “set boundaries”)….let that happen naturally the next time she does something innappropriate. For example, go to the next family gathering as you would normally, and then if she starts in on you, that would be his chance to step in and tell his mother that her behavior needs to change or his family will not be coming to future gatherings. If he tries to do that NOW, before his mother has actually done anything, believe me, she will only use it as an excuse to say that you are turning him against her. However, if it happens naturally when he is defending you against an obvious insult, there won’t be much she can say. That being said, please keep in mind that people like this seldom see the error of their ways or change….your husband will most likely have to come to terms with the fact that he will be seeing his family alone, without you, more often in the future. Good luck.

    Why Do We Call God He Isnt God A Mystical Form Of No Gender But Just Simply God? Im athiest and it makes me feel free to be but when i here people and their religion everyone says he will change your life and being off topic when something happens and you rely on someone to help you you say thank god a lot of people say it out of figure of speech but those that really mean thank god what about the person who done the deed should they not be thanked things we do to do things for others like save lives make great things such as sculpture we give that credit to a god or gods or godesses and you say we go to heaven and hell well sperm is what we are your telling me after having sex a woman killed all the sperm but one how about all the times a male masturbates your telling me that he killed thousands of live so he should go to hell right no because you dont think about it i asked this question to a christian when i was young and they said well all that sperm that died they go to heaven well dang all those centuries of dead sperm your practicly swimming in them when you reach the gates of heaven right dont get me wrong their are great things the curches have done for good but church can also be corrupted as ugly as politics this shows in the ancient times which is why i dont like to say in god i trust because again my life does not revolve around any god and that phraise should be revolting due to the fact that their are religions in this country that believe in more than one god and do not believe in all the same god in justice we trust is what it should be and one more thing we have gays that fight save lives work at retirement home gays are all around us they are the same who is to ceep them band from a wedding it is wrong rethink your ignorant selves here me its un american this is why our fore fathers fought for independance this is why we have higher standards because we believe in freedom we believe it is only right to punish any traitor any ruler and any organization that says what is right and what is wrong when those decisions belong to us we stand under one flag and that flag relys on us to preserve the liberty it holds within the colors the stripes and the fabric that we decorated our pride into each thread be damned if the people who make that flag are gay and cant marry because the people behind politics and churches and among our selves say its taboo religion is taboo religion does not run this country we do IN JUSTICE I TRUST!!! do you.
    maybe i should have made two questions to keep the religous question part from the political question lol but seriously take the time to read the passage and you will understand my questions and my reasons for questioning them.
    and dont call god anything because its controdictory he isnt right she isnt right it isnt right so get it right lol your god is god its mind boggling to understand to call this life form you believe exists it because an it cant speak and according to your belief again god is of no gender so we’re at a stand still to know what to call this mystical creature someone answer to this so i can under stand you speaking of the christian god is really confusing me to death its like a he/she/it doesnt know what to call its self ahh i jjust said it im confused

      Wow. Text wall. Only read first and last sentences. But we call God ‘He’ (even though you’re right, He’s not ‘masculine’ by our terms) is cause of a little passage in Genesis, where it says man was created in the image of God, and women in the image of man. So since man is one step higher in the chain, we call God He. And honestly, do you want to call God ‘It’?

      Also, we don’t hate gays. That’s one of my biggest pet peeves, when they look at my screen name and immediately say “homophobe”. I don’t like gay marrage because, yes, the Bible says to not have gay sex. That doesn’t mean that I hate gays. I just think that gay marriage is wrong.

      A sperm is not a human. It will never become a human on its own. Neither, for that matter, will an unfertilized egg. Once the sperm and the egg meet, however, that’s a being in the making. To disrupt that is, in my opinion, exactly the same as stabbing a newly born baby.

      And based on your nationalism, you ARE religious. At least in the sense that you’re devoted to something. Dude, America’s a country. Just like any other. In three hundred years, people will say, “Are you kidding? America was POWERUL?”

    Do People Even Know What Patriotism Is Anymore? The average person thinks that patriotism means putting a flag outside your house and bowing down to the government. Whenever I question the Wars in Iraq or Afghanistan, I get branded an unpatriotic traitor. When I am concerned over the fact that America is dying, or the fact that the government is slowly becoming more and more powerful and tyrranical I get “love America or leave it” as a response. Then theres the “good ol’ boy” types saying we should blow up the middle east and kill all the muslims because apparently, every muslim is a terrorist. So I guess I’m just unpatriotic and a “complainer” and a “hippie” and I should just agree with the government and accept tyrrany or “leave America.” I guess I should agree with every single unjustified war we start, accept the deaths, and physical and mental injuries of our soldiers, and accept the hundreds of thousands of civilian casualties or else I’m a “hippie” and a “complainer.” What happened? Have people forgotten what patriotism is? Have we forgotten the advice of our founding fathers?

      As an American it is your JOB to question the actions of the federal government.
      They work for you and me. It is our responsibility to keep them in line.

      I know how you feel. I get tired of being called a racists simply because I question the actions of our current administration.
