He did pay the mortgage for her after he found a rental. Then stopped after he could not afford both plus buy her food and pay her support. She kept the impending foreclosure from him so he had no clue. Actually kept his mail hidden so he couldn't act on the possible foreclosure. When he found out banks told him it was done, they would not allow him to reverse it.
She wants full child support which he was told by a counsel could be up to 1200. He has been paying 800 plus paying utility bills and buying food. She waived spousal support.
They share custody 50/50 but she lives with uncle now and he has kids full time in his home. He has been trying to get a house but has had no luck due to the foreclosure. He has always had perfect credit until the house and a loan she accrued also another criminal act of forging his signature taking out 100k without his knowledge. He paid most off but she agreed to pay final 11k which she has not done therefore affecting his credit. All of these are outlined as her responsibility in court order but he still can't recover since banks don't care about court orders just want their money.
There is no way to know what she will do as far as custody. At his point she has been turned down by several rentals due to her instability with rent , income and credit. She can't even get utilities because they flagged her for lack of payment. She used his name to get it and her moms both times owed over 1000k so they won't give her utilities. I don't know how she will be blue to care for the kids in a home.
He sought counsel but they told him he couldn't do anything about the tainted credit or the option she may seek for court ordered child support.
I encouraged him to seek counsel again this time but he is pretty certain he will be screwed. Thinks system is severely one sided to help women even ...women like his ex who has drinking problem, does not want to work, and kids admit she does not take care of hem like he does. His odest is 13 and does not want to live with mom at all. His pungent is 8 so he is the one he worries about mst.
