My daughter father is from mexico so he has no papers, I was wondering if I could still get child support? He wants his days, but I don't want my bby going to his house alone. He told me tht he was going to take her away from me to make me suffer. She's only 15 months. I wish I cld jst erase him from my life. He always says negative things tht dnt even matter right now. And always gets angry at me for the smallest things.

I think, since he's threatening to take your daughter (and likely he could easily flee back to Mexico with her) that you need to file an order for emergency custody as well as request child support.

the child support case is there but I need to turn in some paperwork, will it effect us getting his tax return?

I don't know if it will or not, but you should talk to your attorney.

I'm not entirely sure how SSI works but I would make sure you/she has an attorney.  Also, you may be able to press charges against him for statutory rape because of their age differences.

I have not received my child support in three months. I was told that he Is working, but still no payment! We do have a court order. He is behind 4,200! I don't know what else to do. I would really hate it, if we had to go to court over this! My son's father and I have no kind of relationship. We do not talk. He hardly EVER sees my son. I am just so fed up with all of this.

Have you contacted child support enforcement?

My ex did tooo....as per HIS attorney. Now he doesn't work....his new wife stabbed him in the leg and I am not sure he is ever going to go back to a real job again. Meanwhile my dd suffers. As much as I wish I could be home with her all the time...it is a good thing that I have always worked and supported her and myself. Never depended on him.
