Hello. I have a question on what i should do. I have a two year old by a guy i dated for about a month and he is in the army. A drunken night ended up with me getting pregnant. Well, before i even knew i was pregnant i broke up with him and moved from North Carolina to Tennessee with my mom and brother. Once i found out i was pregnant i called him and told him. well, he just hung up on me and hasnt talked to me since. I called a million lawyers and nobody will help me. They said since my son was never born in north carolina nor does the father have any legal ties with any other state than North carolina, that the judge will just dismiss it because they cant legally order him to do anything from out of state. And i even thought about just getting a lawyer in North carolina and just traveling out there from Utah to go to court...but no, i cant even do that because i have to LIVE in north carolina for 6 fricken months! How the hell am i suppose to get child support if nobody will help me? I am barely scraping by and he and i could both use that money. he needs new clothes, sippy cups, shoes, jackets, and furniture. Not only that but i have no vehicle and can barely afford to pay rent. And when i say that i need a car and rent...that means that so does my son because he needs a roof over his head and a car would help us be able to get groceries, go to parks, and get back and forth to day care easier than it is with no vehicle. Any ideas on what i should do?
