Child Support?

Can you still file for child support even though your still married? We have been separated for the last two years. And how do you go about filing for child support?

  • I believe the only way you can file for support while married is going to a judge and filing abandonment charges on the other. Go to your local Court House and ask, they will be able to tell you what to do. You can also call a attorney (there are some that give free consultations) and ask them. Good Luck.
