Dead Beat Dad III

January 7th, 2009 at 06:54 pm

Today I am scheduled to begin child support enforcement for my one and only child. The thing is, i've had a few appointments and I haven't gone! call me stupid and spineless! I feel the father is such a trainwreck! He has NEVER had steady employment, has always let me down, and I probably make more money than him. I also believe he is mentally ill and really needs psychological help, on the last visit, he threw his son against a bed frame and now he has been charged with child abuse. so he doesn't even see his son. but i want to make the point to get him to step up. here i am with all my money issues and i don't know why i get this emotional over child support. in november he gave me $100. he didn't get a birthday or xmas gift for his own son.

    Your son is entitled to be taken care of, do not feel bad his dad should be stepping up to the plate. And make sure you go, step out on your faith and do the right thing. I would definitely keep my son away from him unless it is supervised and he is seeking counseling, good luck

    Saj, it is alimony that is controversial, not child support. Unlike adult, a child is not expected to support himself, so it is both parent's obligation.
    Good luck to you.

    As a person who fathered a child he has that responsibility. My BF only works 10 hrs a week, but he stay pays child support out of it. Even if it is only $20 a month, he should be giving you money for your child. Stand up to him and go for it! It is your right and your son's right!!
