My husband pays for his (ex) stepson's school meals, after school care and also provides for him (food, clothing, etc.) while he is in our home (2 weeks a month). He has not adopted him and the biological father's whereabouts ARE known. His ex-stepson also carries his biological father's last name. How can we get the biological father to pay instead of my husband?

Step parents are generally not liable to pay support for step children. However it depends if he has agreed to a legal obligation in return for visitation. The mother may file a request for child support against the biological father. However it seems that since your husband pays these expenses she has little incentive to go after the biological father.
