So, the family crisis...
My parents seperated when i was 3 and they havent talked since. However, this makes it slightly difficult for the situation of 'child support'
Child support is the money dad has to pay every month for our upbringing btw.
Anyway, because they dont talk, the burden was handed over to me and I am in charge of getting the money. This usually is okay but sometimes dad is late with payment, mum flips out and i am piggy in the middle which is never fun.
To make things worse, dad isnt paying for my sister anymore (his exuse is because she is an adult now; 18). This has caused a riot in my house because dad thinks its okay stopping payment for her as the court did say 'when she was 18 you can stop'. However, mum thinks the court said 'its only okay to stop payment if she is 18 AND has a job which is helping her to pay her own way.
See where the confusion lies? And now because they can't agree to disagree, its all going back to court. This is horrible in itself because i get really upset by it, but mum won't let me see dad until this courtcase is over - and i know its going to be ages until its over.
So, problem 1 = i havent seen dad in ages and i wont for ages.
Without telling me, my sister and brother, my dad has booked us to go on holiday with him in February. When my mum found this out through her solicitor she was not happy. Because its causing so much conflict between everyone, my sister has called the trip to an end is not coming anymore. Me and my brother stil want to go, and i feel bad if i dont because dad is really excited and he will lose money. Well, my mum is being difficult and horrible and doesn't want me going on holiday with him because obv i am not allowed to see him 'until courtcase is over' apparently. I really want to go but i am scared that mum just wont give me my passport. She looks after it - if she doesnt give it to me, theres nothing i can do. I lose =/
I just hope that all this shit gets sorted out soon. I really miss you dad and mum, please try and be a bit more understanding. I love you.
