My ex indicated he would settle for a lump sum payment of a specific amount to cover child support. Then he said that we settle child support or he would call a company that I owe money to. I consider this blackmail and what is to stop him from doing it again if he wants to get something out of me again. I haven’t done anything about it and I don’t know what to do, but this makes me not want to try and settle. However, I would be willing to give him a few hundred dollars and wait. Before the blackmail, I suggested he start a Child Support case.
