My ex and I did our divorce without lawyers, agreed on everything. He wanted 50% custody/placement, so no child support was necessary. It didn't happen. He chose to live out of the school district, so no bus. Lives in a house too small for our teen girls to be there for more than a weekend, just no room. Anyway, over the last year he has given me money when I've said I want to refile for support, but its not even half what our state would expect him to. I'm destroying myself financially, so yesterday I did call him and say I have the papers to refile, we can either agree and there will be no court date, or I will file and we will go back to court. He just screamed at me that I wasn't going to threaten him like this, he's taking the kids from now on 50% time, threatened to take me to court (for what I don't know). I was just shaking when I hung up, reminded me of what I lived with. I can't back down on this, I can't afford to. I know he's going to try to put the kids in the middle. I thought I was done with this crap.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
