I have never heard of this , my friend is 8 months pregnant and her ex took her to court for CS and the judge said she doesn't have to pay until she gets a job after the baby . I find that hard to believe . What do you think ?
She has two other kids with him ?

1- the child isn't born
2- they will need to put her income in as something
3- what if the father requests a dna test when the child is born - its too many variables for the court to do anything

The child isn't born yet...so that sounds pretty fair to me.

This.  Please clarify.  She has to have income to owe CS.

So her ex is going to get custody of the baby once it's born?

I assume your friend has a child she does not have custody of.

Sadly, women who owe CS are treated very diffently in court versus men who owe CS.  It's disgusting.  A man would still be expected to fork over, even if he was in a coma from a work accident, but a woman gets pregnant and the courts cut her some slack because she can't get work right away....

She should not only pay something, the judge should put arrears in place during the time frames she wasn't working and couldn't pay.  Being big and pregnant is no goddamned excuse.

The ex took her to court for a different child than the one she's pregnant with, right?
