On or about ten years ago my x husband used child support payment as a bargaining tool in our divorce. All children are adults now. When I was talking to a bank loan officer, it was brought to my attention that my x wasn't paying me $25 a month for his share of life insurance costs. I called DFAS and they do not give me anything except my portion of his military retirement. So I told him in email. I wish I hadn't. He now threatens me with jail once again, says agreements can be broken, and he his going after me for child support. I was a housewife for 26.6 years. He kept a phone line without a functioning phone for years. . .
