The state is Louisiana. My question is I have joint custody of my children. They live with my x-husband. I pay my child support every month. I am supposed to get the kids every other weekend and every summer, but inorder to pay the child support every month, there are some times that I can't take the kids for the weekend or just maybe not one day of the weekend I am supposed to take them. I am supposed to have custody of the kids during the summer and pay my x-husband the entire amount of child support while the kids live with me. I can't afford to do this so I don't take the kids in the summer. My x-husband is threatening to take me to court, can I get introuble for not taking them? Please help!!!!
