I just do not understand why people are so obsessed with child support. My daughters father is not in her life and I would not take him to court for child support, I do not want his money, I would rather take care of her myself. All I ever asked of him was to be in her life and he chose not to, his loss not ours! I am married and we have a son together and if we ever seperated I would not take him to court either, and I know he would be involved in his life. Could I use the money of course, raising a child is expensive, but I still do not want the money. Am I alone in this thought?Answer Question

Not everyone is able to adequately care for their child(ren) without child support from the non-custodial parent, and there is nothing wrong with that. Both parents should take financial responsibility for their children. While I agree that it is the biological father's loss that he has chosen not to be in your daughter's life, he still has financial responsibilities. Your daughter deserves financial support from her father, and if you don't need it for her day-to-day care, just imagine what a huge college account she could have with several hundred dollars deposited each month, plus interest over the next five, 10, or 15 years! Unless the man is a danger to your daughter, why wouldn't you want child support for her? I don't know your specific situation, but that is my opinion.
