Child Support

Many know Weston's dad just popped back into the picture as of Thursday to sart seeing him.
I've been debating on contacting a lawyer for 5years of back child support owed. Should I do it? Even though he just popped up? I filed when Weston was born. But he hasn't paid a dime and hasn't gotten any consequences for it.

Your son deserves that money. You don't want his dad thinking he can drop in when he feels like it. That's just wrong.

Spending time with his dad is priceless, some dad never come, he trying to be in his life. My DS is 4 and I raise him by myself, no child support. But if you are struggle with money than yeah

I would. Weston deserves that money. Period. And if his dad cannot mannot up and support his child in every way, he sets no good example for Weston, does he?

I think you should even if you have enough money to be stable now having extra to put back for savings is a really good idea im gonna do that when i get child support

 So seeing as how many of you think it will be a good idea, I will be contacting the lawyer tomorrow morning... hopefully whoever I speak to will be able to talk to me more about it in person. Fingers crossed!

Unless you filed for child support 5 years ago and he never paid, you won't get anything from the past 5 years.  Child support is calculated starting on the day that you file for it.

Really?
