and I have been living off of her father's child support. In truth, he's supposed to be paying 3k for each child. And he has 3. Noah's here in Chicago, the youngest sister is living with their mother, and her middle sister is living with her father, which gets him out of having to pay all of the child support for that one. So that's still 6k he needs to shell out as the court ordered.
Well, as it turns out, after putting Noah's mom through hell in legal fees...that ass has officially changed, altered, and in general, screwed up ALL of our destines at once. He's now made it to where he doesn't have to pay anything to anybody after Noah turns 21 this November. This is now how it affects everybody:
Noah and I have been getting 1600 a month from him (which is a slight bit over half of the 3k child support he was supposed to be paying) and he isn't going to pay that anymore. Sucks because I just got confirmation about me getting both into school AND hopefully getting this job in Radio Shack. I'm finally on my path to success and I'm not letting him screw it up for me. Noah too, since she'll still be in school while having to deal with well, her dad screwing us over like that.
Noah's mother however is getting hit kinda hard. The house that she lives in is, well, since they have had the home when she was married to him, is well, now beyond her means. Worse yet is now that he's pulling payments...they have to move out, and even though it's not terrible Noah's mom finally has to work...it's still changing everything. Her youngest sister was already hurt by the divorce, now she'll be messed up even further by forcing to move because of her douche of a daddy.
And to finally top it off...he's expecting Noah to move back since he has no intention on her surviving here in Chicago. Hah...that's one that he's NOT going to win. We'll find a way no matter what.
Oh tomorrow's gonna be FUN, because right when we land in PA...he's the one picking us up from the airport. I'm gonna have fun watching Noah lay into him. If she doesn't...I totally plan to, and don't care at all what he has to say about it.
This irony comes after his Christmas present to her and her family. A rather heartfelt letter about how he's sorry for being a bad father, son, brother and so on. And how he planned to change and crap. And then continues to throw court cases at her mom, draining her of what little money she has, takes money away from her daughters, taking away from their chances of success. Ugh...
And yeah, I understand that this means we have to strap down and get our own jobs, but this is besides my point, we can make it that way. It's the fact that a real parent should help their son/daughter when they can, and not take away the money for any other reason aside from petty spite. We're so close to getting to our own happy ending.
I'm so tired of bad parenting it's driving me mad and making me sick.
But you had be damn sure we WILL make it. He envisions this screwing us over, including our relationship. And yeah, that's sure as hell not gonna happen either.
