  • No. It's his child not yours.

  • As long as his name isn't on the account, no.

  • Depending on how you set the business up and what state you are in. If you are married and you set your business up as a sole proprietorship then it is likely yes they can take the money if you live in a community state like California. If you are married you both are responsible.

    I would suggest you check with your state on the community property laws.

    You can set your business up as a corporation and then you can be legally protected but again I would check with your state.

    How many kids does not matter! One child matters! On the personal side I believe that anyone who has children and is not paying for thier child support is doing a dis-service to the child. Whether the parents like each other or not! The child is a gift and should be paid as such. I am not saying it is always easy for people to pay child support however I am saying the child deserves it.

  • LegacyKimberley is right. If it's a corporation they can't. If it's a proprietorship they can. A proprietorship is basically where you are the business. A corporation is where your personal finances are 100% separate from the company. They are taxed differently and they also have different liabilities.
