So DD would like to participate in a sporting event her team is attending on her dads weekend....it's a chunk of time (half a day) and some fees.....about $30.00

I have asked him to pay for the fees as it is his weekend (I pay all extra-curricular and club fees).....his reply was

What does my weekend have to do with paying for the meets?

So I can think of lots of smart ass comments to reply with....but that is not going to get me anywhere....so.....How would you respond....or not??

Thanks!!!! 15

What does your divorce decree state about extra-curricular activities and payment? Is CS supposed to cover them all, or are they split in some fashion?

If he were a stand-up guy, of course he would pay. But if he were that guy, he never would have cheated, you'd still be married, and not in this situation.

You have to remember who you're dealing with!

What a shithead. He can't put DD ahead of his petty games against you? Don't sink to his level. If you can afford to, pay the $30 so she can attend. Make sure DD knows you've taken care of it. He'll still have to deal with the chunk of time needed.

How about...

"You're right, it being on your weekend shouldn't really be the deciding factor - sorry. I pay _______ (list what you pay here), so I really was just hoping you could help out by covering this one. If not, I'll gladly cover it, as I want to be sure that DD has this opportunity."
