Has anyone else been in this position?? Not sure what to do :(
So my son is 3 and his father has barely been in his life from day one of finding out that I was pregnant. We went through the whole court process after he was born and he was ordered to pay $80 a week backdating to the date of birth. Something happened during the court process and the paperwork was never actually put through to have the money taken out of his check every week so he is in arrears $12,700. He has not paid a penny. I have been wanting to take him back to court so that I can start getting the money but every time I try and bring the subject up with my mom to see what she thinks about it all she says is that I shouldnt bother with it and should just let it go so that we dont have to deal with him anymore. But I think that he should be held accountable for making this child too...it wasnt just me in the bedroom lol. But my mom seriously gets mad at me any time I try to bring up the subject so I am afraid to actually go for it and take him back to court because I am afraid that is going to cause problems between me and my mom. And yes I live with my parents so that is why I am so worried about it. Has anyone else been in this situation? I have no clue if I should just let it be since he obviously doesnt want anything to do with our son anyways or if I should hold him accountable and make him pay.
