childsupport

ok so i have to go to court in february, for childsupport for the 4th time, and i was wondering will they just give my babyfather half custody with his support? because he has 3 kids by his wife (the thing he left me for) and he doesn't come see our daughter(his first child) and he doesn't do anything for her

  • He has to petition the court for visitation rights or custody of the child. The court will only address the child support issue itself and they will base it on his income.

  • Child support and visitation are two separate issues. They will only address the child support.

  • yes they will only address child support, in most states he has to petition for visitation unless you were married. if you were married you have to both agree on who what where when and how.
