I am so sick and tired of trying to encourage a relationship between my eldest son and his father! Hr walked out on me when I was pregnant and has never been there for his son. He continually walks in and out of his life! He claims to love him; but never wants him! My son didn't even know who he was till his 3rd birthday. He just dropped him off this weekend and never came back when he said he would take him till August 1st because am in a huge bind right now (Boyfriend and I split; I moved in with friends to save for an apartment; only to have to move back in with the X). He doesn't pay child support (only paid 6 months worth three years ago) even though there is a court order. He never brought any of his clothes back to me (which I bought)!; so I had to go out and buy my son more clothes. I only had three outfits for him; I sent the rest with him so they had clothes when he was there. He is married and they have a 1 year old baby whom he cares for and supports. I don't want to cause problems; but I am so fed up with this! I am in a financial bind and need help! Should I take him back to court and push for the child support to be enforced? He will most likely end up in jail; he was going there last time until I dropped it. I feel bad that the kids will be without "Daddy for 6 months; but I really need him to realize that he has more then one child and I need his help! I know putting him in jail will not get me support but I think it's sure time he grows up! Am I so bad for wanting him to take responsibility for his actions?

I would take him back to court! That's pretty messed up, he could have spent more time with his own son and ended up bringing him home way early...not to mention he doesn't support him , I would take him back to court, in fact, I'm in the process of doing that myself. They wanna be shitty father's, fine, these kids are still their responsibility. As far as making him see his father, I never did that to my daughter, that's her choice! Just because they hold that title as "parent", doesn't mean their a good one and if he wanted to see his kid, he would make an effort and he doesn't! If he can support his new baby, he sure as heck can take care of his first born, don't let him get away with it ! You don't get a break from it do you? Neither should he financially!
