I am a single mom with a 2 year old. I just got notice that my sons dad is seeking child support because I am working, and he inst, which he hasn't worked since our son was 1, and he is going on 3. We have Joint custody, but I provide for our son financially by myself with no help from him. I pay for his child care expenses, and he refuses to pay just the few dollars a week to help with that. He also applied for cash assistant, and because of this, it added another case for me to possibly pay child support. I make 12/hr and pay Rent, and my son's father stays with his grandparents. Is there a way that I don;t have to pay him or the state child support, I'm honestly pinching pennies with the responsibilities I have now.

Also his worker called me and told me because he is receiving aid from the state, I am considered the absent parent, even if this is not true.

@Emrld110,
Don't waste time here at a forum which can't provide you with legal advice.

@Emrld110,
His worker? Whatever - even if that person is a lawyer (and I bet they aren't); their opinion is lovely but meaningless.

Get thee to a lawyer. And sue for full custody. Your baby daddy isn't contributing at all, and is trying to leech off you.

@Emrld110,
If I were in your situation, I'd hire a lawyer.
