Can I stop paying child support because I don’t like my ex-wife’s new boyfriend?

Child support is an obligation owed to your children; it is a not a lash with which to guarantee, that your ex-wife will conform to your wishes. Why would you want to punish your children because you dislike a third party?

If you believe that your ex-wife’s new boyfriend is harming your children, or is detrimental to them in some way, there are other avenues of attack for you. Do not use child support payments as a weapon of revenge.

Using child support as a weapon is a common mistake made by many parents. The repercussions of such actions will hurt that parent and the child(ren). The immediate satisfaction of manipulating the other parent has no significant reward on the long term.
