Xpoopsmear is pissed because I am finally taking him to court over all the child support he shorted me. The amount of money is upwards of $50,000 over the last eight years. He has shorted me by lying about his income and not paying child support on certain portions of his income he feels he shouldn't have to. And of course, since Xpoopsmear thinks he makes all the rules he's mad that I'm not following them.
Fast forward. DD18 graduates this weekend from high school. A couple months ago, back when he thought he was glossing over this child support issue, and that it might work, he and I went in together on a gift for DD18. We've bought her a laptop. Because I fronted all the other graduation expenses, (robe, invites, stamps, dress, cash gift) he gave the money for the laptop. The gift will be from both of us, however. The last communication I had from him was asking how many members of his family would be at the post graduation luncheon. We were making the reservations and I needed a number. It was a civil exchange of information.
Today since child-support was late I sent him a text asking about that and asking when he wanted to let DD18 open her gift.
Below is my text:
When will you be transferring the child support? Also, when would you like DD18 to open her present?
This is what I got back:
Don't ask first question again. You will get the same answer. When I get paid. Would you like a screen shot if my bank account balance. I get paid tomorrow as I stated to you always happens on months that I get three checks. I don't really care when she opens it. Just say its from you. I am sick of dealing with you.
Now let me just say, I know he's lying. Having requested his bank statements in discovery, he's always been paid earlier in the week even on months that have three paydays. Whatever. By now I know he's a lying poopsmear.
I have yet to respond to this message and I need some SI wisdom on what I should say, if anything.
