    Question Child Support..

    I was talking to my Bff, who is pregnant with her first child..
    Her babies daddy has 3 kids with 2 different women.. They both have taken him to court for child support (and got laughable amounts)
    Well she wants to take him to court for custody and all that jazz.. Well she's friends with both (actually ones her sister) and she was talking to her sister who told her that his lawyer told them both (his sister and her babies daddy) that if she would to take him to court, he would be able to claim them all at one location. That way he only has to pay one person ( will go to the one with the most kids) and then it needs to be divided that way.
    Well she's worried if this is the case that if either of them get it she won't see any of it.. Like I said its a laughable amount that he has to pay (and doesn't) but any would help right??

    Is this true?
    She wants to take him in as she wants custody.. He already doesn't take care of the kids he has.. and only really sees them when its easiest for him or wants to show off..
    SHe has a couple more months until she's due and she's trying to get all her ducks in a row!

    Man, obviously one payment wouldn't go to one woman to divy up amongst the others.

    That sounds like one helluva Christmas dinner! Sisters??

    Yes sisters.. its a crazy situation to say the least...
    And thats what his lawyer was telling her sister and him when her sister took him to court for the custody.. As they know she is pregnant with his child as well

    the courts will look at all amounts being paid for the kids and take the others in consideration before making a amount. He will rejust the other amounts or she will get same. But he can claim the other 2 support payments in court so the judge can see what he is paying already......AND THIS guy needs to be fixed.

    ok, i have nothing constructive to add - i'll admit it, i'm kind of confused. but i'm trying to work this out.

    after the baby's born. his/her cousin is also going to be his/her half brother. is that right? and i thought my family had drama! lol!

    hope everything works out for your friend. good for her for trying to get everything sorted out from the beginning.

    Oh the drams already starting.. there thinking of raising them as cousins.. but Bff wants to tell her dd the truth and her sister doesnt want to tell her ds..
    these two fight like cats and dogs so wether or not they actually are on speaking terms is another thing..
    the other kids also know she's pregnant and know her sisters son..
