    Ah Ha , The old one sided child enforcement ploy . I went through that where the kids were “her” property , Turned out as good as that now widow whose husband wasn’t left enough to live on while the wife (and boyfriend) pushed it till he’s dead, now and we get to pay her SSI for the kids .
    The Story smells of fraud (C&Y involvement ?)
