My ex and I split in June. I've been a sahm since my daughter was born 1 yr ago. So far I haven't been able to find a job. Since he left he hasn't paid any child support. He makes over 50k a year, but the only way I can feed our daughter is with food stamps. I filed paperwork with Child Support Services to have them file a petition with the court on my behalf, but they couldn't get us into court for 4-5 months. I told my ex we should work out some support arangement on our own until then or he'd be paying tons of back child support. He told me that since she lives with me the financial burden should be mine, not his. So, I hired a lawyer last week. We go to court in a month. My ex is going to be served at work with a summons this week (he refused to give me his new address). The past few times we've talked we've gotten along, but I can just imagine what's to come. I'm just wondering how others out there have delt with this.Answer Question

Try to get any and all help,wic,food stamps,whatever,see if can you get daycare money so you can attend a training school, I know in most states they will pay you while you go to training,and give you a clothing allowance.Keep calling the courts,do you know any of his family members,somebody knows where he lives. I wish you good luck,remember you are not alone,you have a lot of women standing with you.
