Wondering if I should file for child support.
I don't qualify for any government assistance because I have equity in a home and work hard.
How about http://childcareaware.org/ See if you at least qualify for low cost child care..not sure how big your house is..but would there be space to rent it to a student or someone who could help with housekeeping instead of payments. Something like a month to month thing. It is really difficult to do what you do..on your own..wish you had some family support at least so you could get out on your own once in a while.
You'll find out if it's worth it when you go to court to get it.
Harmony - great advice especially since if you have been there, done that. Sweets, to add to this, I will give you example of an acquaintance of mine. She has
be prepared that if the court does step in..he will want some sort of visitation/custody....I truly think he needs to be told to get off his a$$ and start paying...but be prepared for the fallout..
Can you just stop by at the local court /CS office and ask around..since CS laws are grainy across states.. maybe that will help to see if worth filing or not..
