How did you walk away?

If your child's father just gave up, stopped calling, stopped paying child support, how did you walk away?

Did you change your number? Block them from Facebook? Delete his family?

What was the turning point when you decided that this is for the best and nothing you do can make him change his mind?

I just leave it up to him! I don't block anyone but I also don't look for him. I will not to be blamed for him being a dead beat! He's doing that on his own!

Same here. Best decision I've ever made.

If he's not paying child support I'd invest in a lawyer or call your state. If he's working then its mandatory for them to take it out of his paycheck. Garnish his wages.

Yes I can agree with you! I put all my effort in her and we keep busy. I don't have time to worry about him... If he calls to see her it's fine with me! He just has to be the one to come see her. If he don't it's fine she's to small to know.

I unfriended my ex a few days ago. He went to jail in November and was released a little over a week ago. He started posting stuff on Facebook and it showed up on my newsfeed. He never called us when he was in jail. But he called his friends and family.

I'm so nosy though. I want to know what he's doing. Not because I have feelings for him. I do not! I just can't believe how okay he is right now. He seems like he doesn't care at all how our son is. It's like a sympathy heart ache.

I watch my son grow everyday and to see this asshole reproducing with more women and not meeting the other baby, it irks me!

I walked away.  I saved money for about 3 months, enough to get utilities turned on in my name and rent and deposit on an apartment.  He went to work, I called several friends, we loaded all mine and the kid's stuff in their trucks, and we left.  I never went back, I never even looked back for one moment.  When I had my fill I made the most and best decision of my entire life.

He was just released from jail a little over a week ago. He owes me from June to now though. His last job was in July. He was in jail since November

Did he ever go looking for all of you?

None of the above. I told him he was welcome to contact me if he wanted to and stopped contacting him. We are still FB friends, he knows my number, I still talk to his family from time to time. No need to act like a teenager about it and delete/block people.
