How much is too much?
      06/29/11 04:22 PM

My partner of five years is from NL. He has one small child with his ex and is a very loving and devoted father. Although he lives far from his little boy, he calls him often as well as sends presents in the mail. I have two kids from a previous marriage and we make it a priority for him to be included in our life that we have built together. I have been on both sides of the fence with child support issues in my own life. I had good experiences as well as bad ones and try to look at things with the best of intentions. I always encourage a good relationship for the child with the absent parent because this is best for everyone in the end. My issues: My partners ex (we'll call "B"), has been using this child for nothing but a leverage tool. They are still working out visitation matters, both having joint custody, but the child lives with her full time. She seems to be worried more about support payments rather than the relationship amongst the father and their child. Support is still being worked out and will be finalized soon. She is seeking 1900.00 a month child support for one child, lives in AB, with her boyfiend who makes 12,000 a month and she makes 5000.00 a month. She's driving a Caddy SUV. Although my bf makes good money, his travel expenses tripled due to her moving to this province to be with her bf. My question is, dose the child really benefit from this child support he may have to pay her. His education fund is paid in full and he's only 6 years old. He has no day care that he is enrolled to, so what does this child need that would possibly cost that much to take care of him? I get 771.00 a month to take care of my two kids, and I work two jobs to meet our financial needs monthly. This is fair, but should this other mom take absolutely an excessive amount of money just so she may use a great portion for herself? I wouldn't feel so bad if he gave her half to raise him, and put the other half in some kind of account to give him for living expenses if he chooses to go to college. My bf and I will always be there emotionally and financially for his litle fella, but I can not feel anything else but slapped in the face by a person who is so self centered. I know that what the courts say to pay, he is lawfully obligated to pay, and will do so. He is a wonderful father. Just wanted to know anyones views on this.
