I do I did not want child support but my sons father used the system to make me go to court and get a dna found out he was his (like I always knew) and was ordered $50 a month a haven't seen a dime yet but I am just fine my other sons father does not pay that and we make it but I do have to say that if god forbid your child's father ever dies you would want to at least get the ssi help with medical and what ever else they offer I guess

For those who have been through a divorce with children. You would know that a huge percentage of the time...the FATHER ends up with all of the BILLS from the marriage!!! YES, it's BOTH parents responsibility to support and raise the children that BOTH of them had. BUT...we all know here that BM can run BD through the ringer using the system and the children as tools to bankrupt him! Not allowing him to have any sort of a life until the last child reaches the "proper" age!
I know this post was not originally about this...but....I wish more women would try to raise the kids they helped bring into this world and pay for all of the bills caused by BOTH in the marriage. I'm sure these women would have more respect for the responsible Birth FATHER these days!!! Sorry, anything surrounding this subject is and will remain my SORE spot.

You are doing YOUR child a disservice by not taking support. It is not for you or about him. Take it and put it into a college fund. You need to educate yourself about this aspect of divorce and responsibility. Regardless of what others have said, child support is not totally about bills from the marriage, it is about the child, and the child's needs.
