child support

So here's the deal my daughters father and I split over a year ago. I immediately took child support out on him because I strongly believe that since he helped make her he should help support her. The only job he can get is with his dad and he gets paid cash so no money can get taken out of his check, his dad actually lied to the court for him and said that he isn't working. He has contested going to court 3 times now and they finally revoked his license (which he already had revoked for his probation) and put a lean against him (which doesn't matter because his parents pay for all his stuff to make it look like he has money). He has already went to jail for not appearing in court once but only stayed two nights because his parents paid bail for him. I don't know what I can do to make him pay, anybody have suggestions?

Honestly if he goes out of his way to work under the table or remain unemployed, there is little you can do to force him to pay. Maybe you can pressure child support to put him in jail. You cannot squeeze blood out of a turnip.

Welcome!

I don't have any suggestions for you, but I'm sure some of the ladies here will have some advice. :)

 Someone like that and with family being 100% support of them not seeing they have to be reponsible not only for themselves but for another life too would exhaust me. I would just leave him alone and take care of my child by myself.

Agreed.

Quoting Oliviasmom72:

Just keep pursuinig it. Soon the bail money will be turned into "bail" child support which will go to you. Hopefully sooner or later mom and dad will stop coddling their adult son and force him to become a man.

I agree with the previous posters - don't give up.

Learn to live without the CS but continue to be a thorn in their side.  The grandparents sound like real gems.  SMH

Good luck!
