Curious About Child Support

by Brittney
(Waynesburg, Ohio)

My boyfriend and I have been together for quite a while.. don't want to get married. We are expecting a baby in February and were told that the state AUTOMATICALLY attaches child support to the father. Is this true? Can you deny getting this? He's in both my life and the baby's life to stay, and we don't want to have the extra stress of unneeded child support. Please help clear up what the actual laws or policies on this are. Thank you so much!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Britney,

Yes this is true, especially if you are receiving any type of assistance. Are you receiving any medical or cash assistance currently?
