Chances Of Getting Child Support
I am a 1st time mom who wants nothing but the best for my child. I am not the type that will keep my child away from her father,but he has done nothing for her. He feel that he will not get anything that I ask him to get for her if he can not see her. In which he don't understand that I'm not trying to keep him away from her but I do feel that he should contribute to see her.
I went through 9 whole months not mentioning almost a week overdue with NO help from him. Never even offered any gas money when (because I'm on Medicaid) my doctor appointments was almost an hour away. I'm trying to do the best I can to show him yes I want him in his daughters life but its not fair that I have to keep coming out of my pocket(which I was working and also in school but had to go on maternity and also had to have a c section) supporting her and he can just "look" like he his supporting her and see and get her when he wants.
No he is not working because he got fired a week after I found out I was pregnant and I still feel that he is not trying to find a job. He go to school also and get a check every month from the VA but I haven't seen a penny of it. I'm trying to give him a chance which i didn't think it would take 9+ months to do so. I didn't want to put him on child support because I was trying to give him a chance to be a man but I don't see any other way to receive financial help from him.
Also, I did not add his name to the birth certificate or give my child any part of his name because of this.
I really need some help. Even if I don't put him on child support, I just want to know my rights.
