Please ignore bluebird - she has a personal problem with me and has no clue what I know and what I don't. Blue - this is your one and only warning - stay off the legal board if you are going to keep this up. See the moderator logo on my name? Do you know what that means? *************** N616Here's the thing - she can take you to court anytime she wants to, for anything she wants to - it doesn't mean she will win what she is asking for - so stop thinking of it as a threat. If she does, she does, and you deal with it then...she is getting what she wants from you right now, that intimidation factor - you need to nip that in the butt. You can't control what she does, but you CAN control your reaction. I couldn't answer you on if she would win child support, just the fact you have taken on the mortgage doesn't say much. If it was a voluntary thing because you wanted the house - when the house could have been sold instead, that debt has less of an impact than if you were stuck with the mortgage in the divorce due to other factors. Her income matters, if she is possibly under employed....what your visitation is matters - long story short, there are a lot of factors that determine child support. What the exact wording of your decree matters as well - if there is anything in there stating in lieu of cs or an adaptation thereof, she has no grounds. If there isn't, well, then she has the legal right to have the situation reviewed. Flip side of the coin, you have every right to threaten her with court if she is leaving you out of things she is legally bound to include you in. Or if she does file against you for child support, you counter it with your issues. Best suggestion, with a shrug of your shoulders look her in the eye, tell her to do what she wants to do and it will just play out how it plays out...no means no, you are a father, not an atm. If she files, take it to your attorney and discuss it.
