long story short he left me while i was only a couple months pregnant. we managed to keep an okay relationship and after i had our son we agreed that he would send me $300 a month. hes now having problems with money, his living arrangements and his income at work. he owes me over $500. in an attempt to blame me for his irresponsibility he says 300 is too much, he cant afford it he says. the reality is he is spending money on alcohol, drugs, going out to eat, partying with his roommates, has a dead end job... he recently moved out of state. iv tried to file for child support in the past and hes ignored all the papers and court appearances.
im giving him 3 options. #1 he deals with paying the 300 #2 i file for legal child support #3 he terminates his rights, my husband adopts my son and he wont have to pay anything

well. eventually the courts will catch up to him and he will have to do jail on the weekends.

Sounds like you got your ducks already in a row! And that's great that you're married to a man that will step up and be your child's father if the biological father does not wish to be. Word to the wise for anyone else: those verbal agreements for child support NEVER work. I've seen it time after time again with both the mother and the father. It may work for a few months, or even a few years, but because there is no paper trail things will eventually get misinterpreted or get ignored. Get EVERYTHING certified through the court, and follow the court orders accurately!
