Fucking deadbeat

Posted on Thu, Mar 25, 2010 at 2:08 PM

To my ex-stepfather: You are slime. How dare you take a low paying position just to avoid paying my mother child support? You worked as a courier driver for over 25 years and could easily get a trucking job that would pay you more than enough to send Mum the money to cover my three sisters. Instead you take a job paying just over minimum wage and repeatedly tell her that you only have $200 left at the end of each month, just enough for groceries, not enough for her. Oh and that you aren't interested in looking for anything higher paying.

Something in my head is telling me that this isn't legal and while Mum doesn't have the money to pay for a high powered lawyer to drag you through the court systems, I am on the hunt for someone—ANYONE—who can help her. You made my teenage years shit and I will NOT see you do this to my mother and my sisters! —Just Another Angry Chick
