What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Georgia
Wife left back in January after confronting her about text message she had been sending to another man. She then claimed the next day she left because I was always a jerk and she didnt love me. We have two kids, my daughter is 3 my son is 6 months. She left to live with her mom, left me with mortgage, bills, and everything, never once helped. I pay her 100 a week in child support I get to see them every weekend (which is a must, or she threatens I never can see the kids again) I also started getting kids every wed. to talk to church. I pick kids up after work any day they need me to or I would like to. My wife is very rarely home on weekends, she is either clubbing or off with one of her men. 99 percent of the time I have to deal with her mother about the kids because my wife will not answer the phone or is gone off with her ‘boyfriends’. On top of the child support I pay their health insurance, I even helped her on medication for my son, but when it came to where I paid for doc visit and medication she did not want to help.
I know of atleast 2 guys she has let take my kids along with my wife out to do something multiple times. But will not allow me to do anything with her and the kids because “we are not together”. To me that is the same as basically trying to deny me as a father of her kids. I am always there for my kids and my kids love me. My daughter cries when she has to leave me.
She will not go and get divorce with me because she is afraid of back taxes since she hasn’t paid taxes since 2004 and has made atleast 30k a year under the table. She also keeps claiming that I am a horrible father and that she will get custody and that I really owe her 800 a month for child support. She seems to be talking out the side of her neck on a lot.
Now that you have a brief background, my question is how hard would it be to get 50/50 joint custody having kids every other week for week at a time. I think this is the fairest way of doing it and would not effect kids since they are not in school and the baby sitter lives near me anyways. When it comes to divorce she said she does not want the house or anything so I don’t think it’s a fight there but I want a divorce final and custody to be joint no one paying any child support that way just splitting child care
