He pays 1/3 of his income to support the kids. He keeps 2/3 of his income for himself and the 17 yr old child that lives with him. I ended up having to move because what he pays me in support barely covers rent, let alone living expenses. (I am unable to work because of our autistic 9yr old son). <p>Now, my ex tries to say that I have to pay 1/2 the travel expenses every time he wants to see the kids because I'm the one that moved away. He can better afford it than I can, except for the fact that he has put himself far into debt because of a shopping addiction.</p>
