Hi, my name is Jackie and I am 18 years old. I just turned 18 February 24. Me and my girlfriend have a 1 1/2 year old baby girl. We have lived together since September 2010 (that's roughly 6 months) When I was 16 my mom pulled me out of high school and didn't put me back in. I have been taking GED classes because when I moved out she wouldn't give me my birth certificate so I couldnt put myself in regular school. My mom received 380 dollars a month in child support from my dad even though I haven't been living with her. When I first turned 18 I went to see if I can get the child support put in my name since I am still in school. They gave me a court date for the end of this month and when I called my father to inform him he didn't have a problem with continuing the child support while I'm in school. My question is will I be legally able to receive this child support?
I am in the process of putting myself in an alternative high school.
