My son has decided he wanted to move in with his father temporarily. He was supposed to be there a month but has decided to stay for a few more months. The father pays me child support. Do I legally owe him the child support money that is taken out of his pay check through the government if we we decided among ourselves? I do not know if he will later ask for the money and wish to be prepared. Thank you sincerely, XXXXX XXXXX
The father is very disgruntle and borders on vile even after 12 years of being divorce and although I waived my alimony - he still resents paying the child support which is why I have it go through the State of Florida.
I just want to be clear. My son is 13 years old and has emotional issues, has been diagonis with ADHD and is currently taking medication. All of this in the middle of puberty. I was having trouble controlling him and thought best he stayed with father for only a month. However, during this time the father has poisoned my child horribly. It is document through my son's current phycologist. My son now refuses to come back home. I can not force my child back home. He is taller than me. Are you saying that I owe the father the money back for the month he had him?
