    texas custody/child support changes

    My divorce was final 4 yrs ago. the decree stated i was to be non custodial parent of my now 9 yr old son and pay the custodial 200 per week.on her side she was supposed to pay off credit cards she took out in my name...didn't happen. Also she was to continue paying off the car in my name ...didn't happen. In fact she wrecked it and wasn't carrying insurance so its gone. the night that happened she went to jail and her family called me trying to find her.I offered to go look at her apartment but my son broke down and confessed to my parents that he had been sleeping on the floor in her brothers house. She had been evicted and was hiding it for a few months so i wouldn't take him back when she got out of jail a couple days later i told her my son was staying with me from now on. I have no intention of letting him live with her full time as he goes to school in my district anyway.now all is well until she gets a new car and apartment and tries to go back to business as usual . my question is how do i go about fixing this i think paying 200$ a week is about like flushing it down the toilet ive never missed a payment and i can prove it.how do i stop this madness?

    Well, i went to see an attorney today she says its best to leave the property alone for right now and just modify the custody agreement. so as i get updates i post them up.apparently well send her a letter requesting her to go to moderation and if she doesn't show up at least we've fulfilled our obligation to the state to attempt moderation. I'm not sure of the applications that have to be sent but i need to come up with a retainer then i should have more hard information to post up. also some interesting points 1) the court will never allow a non custodial parent to not pay at least $200/mo child support i know my ex will never be able to pay it so the only option is to accept that and give it back to her as the mother of my child i don't want her under a bridge just not in my wallet. 2)no sleep overs the state frowns upon live in girl friends during custody disputes there is a morality clause that will be attached to my case when it is reopened.
