You are separated, right? See what you can do about filing for legal separation, if you have not already. And see if anything can be done to get REAL child support out of him. Also, see if you can get it stated, ON PAPER, that neither of you can bring new friends, or anyone, really, around without the other's consent. He thinks things are peachy now? Don't make it easy on him. He has kids to take care of. And, I am not sure, but you MIGHT be able to get some kind of support out of him for you, in the interim. Seriously, go to the courthouse, or DHS or SOMETHING. See what your options are and move on from there. You may be unable to file for divorce, but you sure as hell can make his life less easy NOW! Also, if your income is that bad... and I wouldn't suggest this to everyone...get assistance from DHS if you qualify! You have no intention of staying on it, I assume. So... go and apply. Now, if you get assistance, and continue to receive assistance when the divorce is filed/final...AND you get custody of the kids, he will have to pay. He will have no choice. Anyone getting assistance HAS to file a child support order.
Again, I'm not suggesting you get on it unless you NEED it. But do what you have to do to get him to take care of his kids!
