Having words with someone is far different then having a raised voice argument about an affair,IMO. Kids shouldn't be hearing about that kind of thing to begin with, much less hearing it that way.

The issue was between mom and stepdad and should have stayed there, it had nothing to do with the boy and step dad's relationship and mom has no business allowing it to affect the relationship between the two of them. She makes him out to have been a good father in the past yet because it proves her case to gain child support for him, but uses her dislike for him and the issues she has with him as an excuse to undermine the boy's relationship with him.

You can't have it both ways, either he was a good dad and she should recognize that and encourage the relationship, keeping her intimate details out of it or he wasn't a good dad and she just wants money from him.

How do you like the generalizations now?

I agree, for the most part for sure, however a being a good Dad would include not cheating on his partner thus breaking up the family. It is agreed as well that his actions have absolutley nothing to do with family law in terms of her wishing to get support. I also agree that under normal circumstances that is between the adults. He is 18 and would certainly wish to know why the relationship ended, givin his age, I would have been honest about what happened. There is no doubt there could be a number of valid reasons for his behaviour, however it is what it is.

Key word being "was" a good Dad. Like I said...he has not had any contact with my son since he left this house nor has my son contacted him. I cannot force him to see his step father nor can I keep them apart, I am neutral. He is almost 18 years old and his feelings for not wanting to see him have nothing to do with me.
He was a good father until he started lying, cheating and spending time away from our family to be with someone else. He has spent thousands of dollars on this new woman for hotel rooms, gas to go see her and presents which also takes away from us...
This new man is like a stranger to us. If I had met this person 14 years ago, I would never had gotten involved with him. His morals and values are totally different than mine. His behavior, as a parent and role model, are atrocious!! It amazes me that I am being crucified...not the liar and the cheater!! I understand that there was obviously a problem in the relationship but I was unaware. I believed him when he said he was working late or was out for drinks with friends. He still came home and climbed into our bed. This could have all been avoided if he acted like a man, not a coward, and told me he didn't love me anymore!!

The reason you think you are being crucified is because in family law adultery doesn't matter. And you certainly appear more than eager to nail him to the financial cross in family court for his infidelity.

For an 18 year old who no longer a child of the marriage (look up that term, it's relevant) no less

You don't get sympathy via family law channels for his adulterous transgressions.

That you get from your therapist.

The relationship between the two of you changed and you allowed it to poison the son's relationship. Regardless of age, that's just unacceptable. You let your personal feelings influence your child's towards his father which is so wrong on so many levels. I've got 10 bucks that says during the arguments you had with your child within earshot YOU were the one that brought up the affair for the kid to overhear?

But it's all irrelevant, as long as you can get him for child support without having to support them having a relationship, right? You just want him to pay for the time he 'was' a good dad.

It wouldn't matter how the relationship ended...I still feel he has a financial responsibility to my son. I am not out to nail him to the financil cross. I left a 50,000yr job, that I had for 19 yrs, to relocate with this man whom I loved and trusted with me and my son. I also worked 2 jobs during the summer so I do not sit at home all day and eat bon bons...I have looked for work, taken my resume out but no luck. I am not against them having a relationship, which I think in time, might happen.

No sale.

You are entitled to CS for his first undergraduate university degree AT MOST, IF THAT.
