My ex and I are exs for a reason, but how can he honestly neglect his only child. After billions of texts and calls from my child's biological dad wanting me back, he suddenly announces that he has a girlfriend and he is wanting to cut all ties. Of course there was a catch to this. He claims he is taking me to court to obtain custody so that he and his new girlfriend can have a family. I was like, "ok, really?"

He has been taking care of this new girls child (it isn't even his kid) rather than his own. I've not seen a penny from him. This made my decision on going to the child support building to apply for childs support. If I cannot handle the matters then surely to goodness my state and feds can handle it!

I sit here, watching my boy play and stare in disbelief on how a parent could leave their child behind! It breaks my heart EVERY single day! How can I COPE with this better? I get up and say "THIS IS NUTS" nearly every morning.

It sounds just like my sister and her ex. She ended getting a restraining order and the court will only allow him to see my niece like 2 hours a week. He actually admitted to the mediator person that he neglected her. Hope things turn out better for you.

i know how you feel. my son is 8 and his father has walked in and out of his life since birth, a yr ago i cut off all contact. he was moving away out of state for 1-2 yrs at a clip. i was sick of no calling him on his b-day, no x mas presents. i filed for full custody and won. i am supposed to get child support every week. i haven't gotten anything in months. thankfully, my son recieves ssi b/c he is disabled and so am i. so i'm greatful to have the help of my fiance` & his family as well as my family. I used to wake up every morning saying the same thing. then i realized screw him, i'm mommy& daddy to our son and he is a sperm donor. nick is so much better with out him. i hope things get better and one day you'll find some one to love u and your son.

(((HUGS))) Sorry he is such a dirt bag. What a low life to do that to his own flesh and blood then to have the nerve to say all of a sudden that he wants him.

I have never been able to understand how some people can do this! Sounds like you two are much better off without him

Pft I havent' received a dollar either. I don't understand some guys, seriously.

He was such a good Dad when he was here, now? IDK.

Forget him, he's not worth your time.
Nothing is better than being with your family. Finally reunited after 5 long months <3
