Will this effect the court case?

So I'm in the middle of a child support case right now and i'm getting really irritated with everything. According to the state of Delaware it is a law that the father has to pay child support if the baby is getting state funding. Well last night I got mad at my ex and told him since I'm doing all the work already taking care of this baby without any help from him then i don't need his help. So my question is now that I said that and it's in writing, would he be able to use that against me in the court even though it's a law here in Delaware? or will it not have any effect on the case if he shows it to his moms friend which is the attorney representing him

  • I can declare myself the president if I want to, that doesn't make it true.
    If that's the law, it doesn't matter what you say.

  • If you are getting assistance from the state, they will want their money from the dad no matter what you say/do.
    But just as a side note, beware of what you put in writing!

  • If the law says he has to pay, then what you said shouldn't be able to change that. But I would definitely be more careful what you say/write in the future.
