My name is Gina (33). I am married to Jason (36). We have Alex (DH's DS) and TJ (my DS) - they are 11 (5 days apart). And we have Sam (4) and Gabriel (8mo) together. We both have custody of our boys. Alex's mom is not in the picture much even though they are suppose to have joint custody. She doesn't pay her CS, doesn't call, and doesn't visit at all - not even on her weekends. TJ's dad is remarried and has a 2 yr old daughter. He pays CS (a small amount but he is paying it) and he gets visitation every other week and 2 weeks out of the summer. I have full custody of him.
We are having some behavioral issues with my son that he is seeing a counselor for because it has started to effect him in school and with friends. His dad was in denial for the longest time and trying to convince me that the way to handle him was to "give him a try." Finally has realized that there is an issue and has stopped blaming me and calling me a bad mom. (everything was always PERFECT there and only an issue at my house but now the truth comes out) But that is a whole other post.
I'm Rachel, mom of Sarah (22), James (19), Daniel (5) and babe due in August. I'm custodial step-mom to William (12) and Clayton (10). Neely and I have been together for 7 years and we've had full custody of the boys for almost 2 years now. Their mom has visitation, but she doesn't exercise it as often as she should (about once every 6 weeks, instead of every other weekend) and also does not pay child support, though we do have a court order and she's in arrears nearly $1,500.
Hi Rachel. I couldn't even tell you how much she is in arrears it has been so long. She also has another son who is 4 that she doesn't really take careof either. His dad isn't around at all that I know of.
Welcome to the board Gina. I'm Tiffany, DF is Rob and he has 2 kids both from 2 different relationships. He has joint custody of both kids, almost 50/50 with DSS, and 50/50 residence for DSD.
The ladies here are great. I haven't been around lately, as things have been kinda crazy around here lately! But jump right in, we are all in different places, but all understand the frustrations that come with being a blended family.
