  • if hes your ex then yeah! he helped in making the baby, so he should support you!

  • Sure, if he made the baby he should be taking care of the baby. If he is slow to bring the needs of the child, having it taken from his check will make it alot better, especially if he is one to hold a steady job.

  • Yes absolutely. If you are no longer with him just go to the child support office and ask for help. If you get any form of state aid (food stamps or medicaid) they open the case for free.

  • Yes.
    He will just have to become a man and get a job.

    Most people have already had more than one job before the age of 18.
    Even if he is doing odd jobs, he can earn enough cash to pay for the basic needs of the baby, right along with some condoms cause if he has made one child and is not working, coming up short on needs for the child than he does not need to be making anymore he cannot take care of.

  • Yes

    Answer by admckenzie at 12:56 PM on Apr. 27, 2011

  • Yes, do it!! Cut out the drama and take him to court- then he'll get a job. Too many women think child support happens overnight- it doesn't!! I did it the free way, and it took over a year, and endless of phone calls on my part to speed it up. A lot can happen in that time. And honestly, anything is better than nothing. My ex never even bought diapers...

  • Yes!!! You guys arent together, he isnt helping. It takes two to make a baby, you shouldnt be the only only supporting your child.
    You may want to get the child supported started now, because it takes time and right now he is probably thinking he is off the hook and can do whatever he wants since you havent really done anything. does he spend time with the baby?
