  • If your together why would he have to pay child support? As long as he was helping out with the cost of the child. Someone in Wisconsin told me thats how it is here. And I just dont understand that.

  • I think it just depends.If you two live together and he pays the rent, and your money covers your childs needs, it is about the same.If he is a piece of dirt that should'nt be around any child, then no.Because if he pays child support, he will want visitation alone with the child.
