My daughter is 2 1/2 and just the biggest buddle of joy. She has this "thing" called her father that is just a complete pile of crap. He use to beat me constently and finally after he did it right in front of her I finally decided enough is enough. I left and got an OFP against him. We went to court the judge asked if I wanted child support, I was awarded 125.00 per week under the condition that I would give him visitation that is to be supervised. That was almost a year ago and I still have not seen a dime. He has brought me to court for content against visitation, the aggreement was at a safety center which would cost us 120.00 per time per parent.well with getting no money from him I couldn't afford it so we went back and had set up drop offs with his siter they take her fri nt- Sun nt but they cancell or don't call for months or call at 7 fri when they are to get her at 6. I feel it's not fair to her at all to go throughAnswer Question

He was good enough for you to sleep with and procreate with. You made a conscious decision to continue with your pregnancy and now you will have this man in your life until your daughter is 18 unless he relinquishes his parental rights. Child support and visitation are not linked. I will repeat that. Child support and visitation are not linked. In the court's eyes he can never pay CS and still see his child. The opposite is true as well. You could withhold visitation and he would still have to pay CS. I am sorry he is such a pain but that is the price you have to pay for your DD. Document all the missed pickups and anything else and hit him with contempt. Again, you are in for a rough ride but these are the consequences of sleeping with someone who wasn't a good person.
