Ex texted me yesterday to say that our DS had wet himself and it had leaked into his snowboots and asked if I could drop another pair of shoes off for him. I replied ok and asked whether he supplied shoes for the children whilst at his.
He replied that he had ordered a pair of shoes for him but they were too small and he had to send them back, and mentioned that he paid £40 for a pair of shoes for our DD which were at my flat. So Ireplied that I would send those shoes to his aswell, even though they are summer shoes and not much use now the weather is getting colder.
Since we S he has bought only one pair of shoes for DD, one pair of jeans and one top for DS. These items were bought out of necessity and not because he wanted to buy them.
As far as I am aware it is up to ex to pay for clothes and shoes whilst the children stay with him for 48 hours and the child maintenance he pays is to pay for their living expenses, food, clothes, shoes, etc whilst they live with me.
Is this correct?
It just makes him see him as an even lesser effort of a human being because he can't even be bothered to buy clothing and shoes for his own children. They always return home in the clothes that they had which we split equally when we S.
It's got to the stage that I can't be bothered sending nice clothes to their dads anymore. Ex still harps on about being skint yet he earns £50,000 pa and i earn £6000 pa.
I'm always buying them new clothes and I love buying them new things. At the end of the day that is what ex's child maintenance is for.
Does anyone else have this problem?
