Please no bashing. Mu husband has a 6yr old daughter and the mother would never put his name on the birth certificate or make things legal. Yesterday she decided to make it legal does anyone know how we go about that? We live in in Washington state she lives in Oregon. I also was wondering if you know how it works as in whats going to happen to us. I was reading they make u pay for childcare and insurance. My husband dosent have medical, are daughter is on state and im still on my parents. Also we dont have enough to pay for child care. My husband makes 1700 a month and our bills are 1300. does anyone know if they will take everything from us? thanks for the help.
