  • sounds like you have a plan and unfortunately, in order to show the court how incompetent as a father he is, you have to bear through his "no diapers...yes TV" incidents just make notes of all his visits, dates, times, how long he stayed and his irresponsibilities like that one you mentioned. Good luck.

  • Do you have a financial agreement? If so, he should be giving you what he owes you EVERY month---flat screen TV or not. If you don't, then I suggest you get one asap or you will be living without child support and no way to enforce it.

  • i've had to deal with a dad like that when i first left my sons dad, my son no longer see's his father because i couldnt put my son thru a guy who only wanted to be around when it was convent for him, i dont get child support from him or any thing for that matter. we haven't spoke since july after he had another baby. im waiting to have him sign over his rights as his father but its gonna take time. just put your foot down, let him know its not ok to just come and go as he pleases, and if hes gonna be around he needs to help
