  • You might have to actually get a job to support yourself and your child.

  • Depends on the state. It used to be "no" for almost every state. However my husbands child support just went up for review, it is based out of Utah and since I didn't work the employee handling the review factored in both myself and DD into the support and he was ordered to pay over $200 less than what the original calculations put him at.
