    NO NO NO NO!!!! This is one of those things that the ex husband will never thank you for. And he will try it all over again later. Never let them off the hook, keep a tab if necessary because things happen, but that money is due to the child, and even if it comes five years from now, it will help with university of something.

    Source(s): two ex-husbands, neither of which would offer anything, it had to be court ordered, yet to hear them talk, you'd think they were father of the year nominees.

    NO.. she should not..not if he was the type that never paid a penny..but if he was always on time and good to the children..and he just lost his job then i may consider it, I would bail out my ex because he was all those things and i know he would pay me back..if i ever need anything for our daughter he is more than willing to get them for her.school clothes he got them for her last year when i could not..camera for school project i could not buy it ..he brought it for her 100 bucks and when she broke it got her another one, 2 i pods and a cell phone..etc

    If your ex has been paying and now has medical problems,,,like heart attack or cancer,,, then I can see where you might want to be nice,,, but if he is just being a deadbeat then NO,,, If his excuse is that he does not have enough for his current family,,, then its still NO,,, this child was here first and is his responsibility to take care of..

    maybe for the purpose of returning to work,,(so he can make $ to pay the support) and then only under legal contract of repayment.

    collateral would also be something to consider.

    absolutely not. wouldn't he be in jail in the first place because of the ex wife?

    It depends on why he's there.....I personally would most likely because I'm just that type of person...
