Quoting Mrs Somerhalder:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Jas ♥:</b>" He should take her to court and have the ... [snip!] ... built together, he left with nothing. She lets her oldest stay home because she gets lonely I think he needs custody too"That's ridiculous. He needs to be an advocate for not only himself but their children. Missing speech therapy and letting one of the children stay home from school is unacceptable. In the states, too many absences will warrant a visit from the truancy officers and could possibly get the parent in legal trouble.

My mother is a foster parent and several of the children she has taken care of for a while have been put in foster care because one or both of the parents (depending on whether the parents were together or not) weren't making the child go to school like they were supposed to. The parent would have to attend parenting classes and go to counseling along with the child. Most of these kids were in foster care for almost a year before the court allowed them to go back to their parents. So I definitely think he should take her to court and at least have the child support assessed so that the court can see what she is spending the money on.
